Do babies need water?

Trivia time!

Even in warmer climates, breastfed infants under 6 months do not need additional liquids such as water or juice. Your breastmilk is made up of 88% of water and is all they need to stay hydrated.

After 6 months, you might want to give baby "a few sips of expressed milk or water with his solids – some babies need this to prevent constipation" according to KellyMom.
