My family is advising that I give water to my 10 days old baby, is it advisable, for I have already giving him some amount of water. Please can I continue or stop

It is 'unlikely' that any water you have already given is going to harm him, but it is very, very dangerous to continue to do so.

Absolutely not! You could kill your baby by giving them water under 6 months. Stop immediately... please. All baby should be having is breast milk or properly mixed (if powdered or condensed) infant formula.

No it won't harm your baby. Your baby should get enough feedings during the day that the nutrients in the formula or breast milk should be enough to hold the baby to the next feeding as well as keep them hydrated.

No, it is not fine to give an infant water at all. He or she needs only formula or breast milk the first 6 months of life.
