    I was told to give like you would 'medicine' if she is constipated. So she's only had it a few times in between feeds. X

    When Sophie had a sore belly the other day she was a lot more willing to take the water when I come to think about it

    I was told you shouldn't give them water! They get all they need from their bottles if milk.

    Oh, I guess different midwives must say different things! I've never given Poppy water because I was told not to. She's always had plenty of wet nappies so I'm not worried.

    Yeah I was told they dont need water even if they are FF, only been suggested if they are constipated. My eldest never had constipation but the youngest suffered a little when she was tiny, not anymore!!

    Yeah, we were told that when i changed to ff Holly we didn't need to give her any extra water unless it was a boiling day as the formula is made up of water!
    We have started giving her water in a beaker at tea time now and she loves it :dance:

    I must admit I've never tried Jax with any. He always has lots of wet nappies, never constipated and still feeds every 2/3 hours

    I thought it was dangerous to give water to babies under two months old (just water) as it can effect there blood or something
