When do we need to feed fully breastfed babies WATER?

    It is fine to introduce water as the solids your baby takes become more solid (and if you wait until baby is six months they can start off solid rather than liquid).

    I'd suggest giving the water in a cup rather than a bottle. This way the baby will take less and you don't have to worry about the quantity - just let her drink as much as she wants.

    Best wishes,

    Hi sarah

    does that mean i can start off the solids EVEN if baby still is not sitting upright? She can now sit on her own for a mere few seconds before toppling over, so i'm wondering if she's ready for solids or do i have to wait? Water wise, when & how much shud i give her? Immediately aft a meal? Is there a max amount of ml to give a day? Cos i've heard water can also make their small tummy feel full, hence it'll also make them refuse nursing. Sorry for the silly questions. :(
