giving babies water to drink
I have a new grandbaby and I was surprised to hear that his pediatrician has said that babies should not be givien water to drink until they are about 5 months old. As a result he only is offered formula.
I can see a concern if water were filling the baby up so he wouldn't get any nourishment, but an ounce every now and then is bad?
Is this a new thing now? My kids drank water and they grew up healthy.
