My baby is almost 7 month is it ok to depend on breast feeding as a source of water instead of water

I did with both of my kids. You just have to have them sitting at least half way up in your arms and give a little bit at a time. My mom told me before she died that babies are thirsty too. That makes sense but I understand that you are hesitant and why. You are the mom and only you can know if it feels right! Good luck!!

You can actually just rely on breastmilk to quench their thirst - it is 80% water. However, it is ok for them to start having a small amount of water.
