    talked to my ped today because James has been eating enormous amounts lately.
    he said to wait on solids until 6 months, which is obviously fine.
    but he said i could give water???
    didn't know i could do this?
    is this a bad idea?
    what do you ladies of this?

    They only need water if its really hot and generally that's only for ff babies.

    i tjink if you bf they dont need water at all as your body wotkd it all out for them. Water too soon can mess with their body

    WSS^^

    the only other time to give water is if theyre constipated, but they only need water to complement their solid meals, or if its really hot
