Answer: Hi dear,
Before 6 months of baby's age,nothing should be given except breastmilk and formula milk,not even water.as baby needs alot if nutrition to grow physically and mentally,over diluting or giving water could fill his stomach early and baby won't feed much.it would reduce his weight too.the amount of water in formula or breastmilk is sufficient to quench his thirst.do not give water separately.Älso refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
