Heat wave - 3 month old baby additional liquids/water breast feeding.

What's wrong with it is that you could potentially make baby ill or possibly kill baby. Water toxicity is a big deal. Infants get plenty of hydration through breast milk or formula. You can use cool sponge baths to take the edge off, but don't give water or tea in place of a feeding.

All a child under 6 months needs is breast milk or infant approved formula. If child is hot/thirsty... additional nursing quenches the thirst w/out putting baby at risk for water intoxication which can be fatal. Sure... you can give baby water if you really, really want to and no one can stop you... but when it is not necessary and could potentially kill a child? No thanks... I'd never risk it.
