Answer: Hi! No please no coconut water before one year of age, nothing except mother's milk (or formula as substitute) till 6 months. No beverages (fruit juice, coconut water, etc) except mother's milk/formula and about 40ml of water even after starting solids from 6 months till 1 year old. Also, coconut water is electrolyte and can drain out essential nutrients from body. Not to be given to babies less than 1 year old. Good luck!
