Most should be saying no if your child is under 6 months. Even then, not really necessary because breastmilk and formula both have lots of water in them. They really don't need it and it CAN be dangerous.

Under 6 months... absolutely not. Between 6-12 months it is not necessary, but a small amount (like an ounce or two) on occasion (maybe a couple of times/week at the most) is not typically harmful and CAN help them get used to a sippy cup if you choose to go that route.

Before 1 year, water is not necessary unless you're using it to mix formula.
