When did you introduce water into your babies diet? I am br___tfeeding a 5 month old and was wondering if I should start soon :)

If your only b/feeding and not giving any solids, then there is no need to introduce water. Your best bet would be to give a little bit of water after your lo has their solids to wash it down. And even then you don't have to give water if you don't want to.

I gave my dd water when she was around 7 months,she loves it! and I think it's better for her than juice.

My dd is 3 months old and she has had water twice. I have only given her 2 oz's at a time though. I give it to her to make sure she stays "regular". ~Kristin~

SuzieQ - I don't know the "correct" answer to this...but I have started solids (6mo) and am still bfing...I am offering a sippy cup with water at each feeding. She doesn't "get it"...but I try...then I offer her a bottle with water in it, like Steph to wash the solid down. So far, she only plays with it and gets about 3 drops of water. :-)

My ped advised when they started solids, you should start water- to aid in digestion and regularity.

It's totally fine to give water...whether b___st fed or not...it's just that it's not "needed" when bf.

I've been giving my dd water since she was about 4 months, she kept grabbing my gla__s, so I let her try it. It was pretty amazing, she drank really well from a gla__s even when she first tried. I am giving her water every day now, I also am teaching her sign language for water, she already smiles if that's what she wants. She's 6 months, b___stfed and also is eating solids.
