how much should 6 month old drink

hi my lo is 6 months old and is on 3 meals a day. He drink approx 600 mls milk a day now but does anyone know how much water/juice he should be drinking on top of this, if any? also how do u know when a baby is thirsty as opposed to hungry? if he drinks more than 600 mls milk a day is he likely to become overweight with him being on three meals aswell? arghh so confused xx

Juice/water wise .. i dont think there is a set limit, because at that age they are getting fluids in the form of milk/formula. He will only take what he needs (both fluid and food wise) so i wouldnt worry about him becoming overweight

I think the most you should offer them is 2-3oz of water across the day.
