Well, given your baby is 2 weeks old, you shouldn't even be considering it until at LEAST 6 months old (when it is ok to start solids) without medical advice. Until then, your baby does not need water, and it can, in fact, harm him. It can also result in nutritional deficits, because if your baby needs to drink, it should be breastmilk or formula. There is enough water in those for your baby.
