My son is 11 weeks old and I was wondering if I could give him water at night, when he wakes up ? Should the water be warm ? I'm a first time mom and so this is all new for me !

Like the other moms said, no dont give him water! He is hungry and water isnt good for such a young baby. He needs formula or breastmilk.

Babies should not be given water! He's waking because he's hungry so you should offer him formula or breastmilk. Water in babies this young could be deadly especially if you are giving a bottle of it, google water intoxication in newborns .

No you don't need to give him water. Formula or Breastmilk is all a baby needs until they are 6 months old. Babies wake up at night because they are hungry and water doesn't help.
