Whether it's breastfed or bottle-fed, the baby need to take in clean water every single day, starting of at least one bottle. What is the percentage of water carried in our bodies? Now if we're denying our child water because a doctor or wic counselor tells us its not necessary, what do you feel will result longterm from this? Generations before the current one knew water HELPS cleanses the body of impurities and take away the thirst that milk can not do. (I'm in NO WAY saying not to give your baby milk, Yes, feed them MILK} however giving your child just formula alone can and will cause unnecessary health issues. SOME doctors, (notice I said SOME) especially those whose being paid by the state or government don't necessary care about your child's welfare, and will say just enough to pacify you, meaning quiet you up. If the answers their giving you just doesn't seem to add up, 1+1 = 2, time to go elsewhere. Children's hospitals is one of the best places for wellness care visits besides emergency situations.
