For everyone with babies 6 months and older who take in solid foods, how many ounces of water do you feed your babies per day?


momma - November 1

i give my daughter 4-6 oz water and 4-6 oz of watered down juice (sometimes more juice in a day) as well as 2 8 oz. bottles

Does it matter what temperature the water is?

cold or room temp depends on babys and your preference

I give Aja a 6 oz. bottle of water to drink from a few times a day, but he never wants more than a few ounces. He is most thirsty at mealtimes and always needs water with his food. He likes water more than juice. Juice gives him the runs.

We still are not doing any water. She gets cereal in the morning mixed with juice and water, and then bottles all during the day and then at night a veggie and then a bottle.

I give my girl 4 oz watered down juice a day and around 5 or 6 oz of water

Asjani doesn't sip a lot of water when I offer it to her. Right now she eats a bowl of cereal (mixed with formula) in the morning and in the evening...She gets a veggie in the afternoon; Breastfeedings and bottle feedings in between. I will try water with one of her meals. Do you offer the water in a sippy cup or bottle? Stephanie, are you making most of Amaya's food or are you buying jarred food? I am going to do both...So far, my mashed potatoes are a winner for her.

I also am doing both, she loves my sweet potatoes. There are some foods you have to be careful making yourself though (carrots) and I still dont know how to make squash w/o seeds for her, and I never have fresh green beans here. I buy squash, carrots, green beans, peas and mixed veggies. I make sweet potatoes, mashed reg. potatoes, and the other day we had mashed plaintains so she got a little of that.

when i make squash or pumpkin for my daughter i quarter it and cut a little below the seeds then i bake it at 350 till soft then all you need to do is puree it you might need to add water to thin it a little ... as for carrots i steam them in a crock pot with water for 30 to 45 min. then if there is any water left that is the water i use to thin it down with

if you make even a little bit of baby food, you can give the baby the water that you boiled/steamed the food in once it has cooled of course any nutrients that excaped from the food will be in the water and it will have some flavor to it

i was told that you can give babies one oz of juice or water per month of age per day

My doctor has told me since my son was born that he can have up to 2-3 oz of water per day especially if he is having a hard time going poop. He is 11 weeks now. Sometimes I give him a little bit with his food or for the hiccups, or if I think he is a little constipated. Some days I don't give him any. He does not really like it.

Asjani hates water...maybe I'll add a little fruit juice to it.
