since i gave birth to my baby i have not give him water to drink and his three month is only breastfeeding that i have been doing with him .and i was told to wait till when he's 6 month old before starting any other thing for him but to me i think water is natural.

Breast milk is all they need until 6 months or beyond and giving water is not only completely unnecessary, but also potentially dangerous... and even fatal.

No, don't give him water. Keep breast feeding. Best thing for him because he is getting nutrition and staying hydrated that way.

There is no reason for him to have water at this point. All it will do is fill his stomach with zero calories. All he needs at this point is your breastmilk. Keep up the good work! :)
