No, you should not be filling him up with water. Continue to offer formula. If you are concerned that he is not having anough, talk to his doctor.

At this point, most of his nutrients needs to come from his formula. If he isn't taking enough formula, keep the solids to a minimum. Is he taking the solids ok?
