It may be different for formula fed babies, but I know that for breastfed babies, they don't need water at all. My son's pediatrician said 4-6 oz was okay if he wanted it, but it wasn't necessary.

When my son was that age I was told by the doc that his main liquid intakes should be formula/breastmilk and baby fruit juices but that I could introduce small amounts with snacks if I wanted. Just not so much that his little belly is full from the water. He needs to be full on his food and formula/breastmilk.
