We recently had our 10 month appointment with the health visitor and she asked if my son was drinking plenty of water.. I very rarely give him water but I regularly offer him the breast throughout the day, should he also be drinking water at 10 months old?
So long as you truly feed on demand and your baby can have breastmilk whenever he wants then there is no need for water. However in my opinion a cup at mealtimes is a good habit to get into, even if they don't drink much of it.
Thanks so much for the replies! I offer him my milk throughout the day wether he seems hungry or not so I dont think he is dehydrated, ill try the sippy cup next time we get warm weather and see how he feels about it
