Giving a baby water at night must depend on the age, Newborns - NO. Other ages please advise.

You shouldn't need to give a baby water before they begin solid foods (around 6 months), and even then, it shouldn't replace formula or breastmilk. Generally, they would only need it if it was extremely warm weather and in danger of dehydrating. Water intoxication can occur if you give them too much, and they have such little tummies that you can never know how much is too much.
