Giving water at 8 weeks old

April - posted on 11/14/2013 ( 2 moms have responded )




I was told not to give my baby water at all until 6 months by my mw and hv plus what the net says but my mum swears by it. I took my girl to the doctor for her first check up and due to her pooing every two days and feeds each 3 hours lately I took his advice (paediatrician) and an ounce or two twice a day has worked wonders. She is also so more settled and sleeps more soundly :) there is a lot of negative articles on this but I think it's down to your own feelings on right and wrong but this worked for us

I agree with Amy.

But it's your baby. Ultimately you will do as you see fit.
