    When Will gets tummy ache i give him a few oz of water to encourage his poo.

    was thinking today though, when do you start giving water just for hydration reasons? should i be giving him some each day anyway?? xx

    If he is FF then give water everyday, he will (should) only drink what he needs. My friends LO was FF and from a few weeks old was guzzling loads of water a day - although he was born in May so it was alot warmer!

    If BF he won't need water until 6 months old.

    From 8 months Oscar got the taste for water and now drinks loads throughout the day.

    I didn't think they needed water until the were weaning or for pooping or tummy ache purposes if ff? Obviously if it's the summer and hot as well.

    I only gave my lo water when I have her food for a good few months and then started offering it at other points in the day well.

    I dont give Angel water and shes FF. My HV just said to offer her water if she starts getting impatient between feeds (ie only going 1-2 hours instead of her usual 4) then give her 1oz of water. Or if shes been very sick or had diarrhoea. xx.

    I started offering Jack water when he was about a month old but that was because it was July and pretty hot so he sweated alot. I just carried on offering it between bottles tbh and now he has it after each meal and inbetween too as well as 4 bottle of formula a day x

    hmm, so some do and some don't! I FF and at the moment i don't seem to 'need' to give it to him except for when he has a tummy ache but was wondering if its routine to offer anyway. xx
