The only water I would give my kids at 6 months was in their sippy cups as they were learning how to drink out of them. It is ok to give a 6 month water, but at 6 months they don't need water. Water should NEVER replace a feeding. If it is really hot outside and you have been out in the heat I can see offering some water, but other then having water in their sippy cup as they learn how to drink from it I would not offer any more water. They are still getting all the water they need in their diet through their milk.
