When can I give my baby water to drink?

Feeding a Baby Water

Most doctors do not recommend giving your baby water until he/she is eating solids. Healthy infants who are fed exclusively on breast milk or formula do not need additional water under ordinary circumstances. Babies may fill up on water and not meet their nutritional needs from nursing or feeding since they do not feel hungry.
