Answer: Hi.no. Water and solid should always be started only when baby is at least 6 month old. Before 6 month baby gets all the nutrition from your breast milk and no other food or supplement is required. If you will start wheaning before 6 month of age it would affect babies digestive system as babies digestive system ist that strong.
