10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD NOT GIVE WATER TO A BABY BELOW 6 MONTHS.

1. Breast milk already contains 88% of water. I mean, this is literally water, water and water with a sprinkle of lactose, proteins, fats and vitamins!

2. You can’t be 100% sure of the purity of that water you want to introduce into your baby’s delicate immune system. No amount of purification can beat the naturally available water in breast milk!

3. You can’t be 100% sure of the cleanliness of the cup, spoon or bottle you’re using to give your baby water. Let him suckle the natural water straight from mama!

4. Once you start giving extra water to your baby, he begins to crave for more. The more water he drinks, the less space he has to take breast milk. This will ultimately affect your milk production because breastfeeding is a demand and supply business! Besides, giving your baby too much water may cause water intoxication and electrolyte imbalance.

5. Once your baby’s stomach has been filled with water, he may refuse to breastfeed at the right time. You can guess the rest of the story right?

6. Once your baby gets used to drinking water from a cup or spoon, he may also insist on drinking breast milk from cup or spoon. Don’t do this to yourself. That’s double work for an already tired mom!

7. If you’re using a feeding bottle, that could even be worse. Your baby may now prefer the bottle teat to your natural, God-given ni.pples. We call this NIPPLE CONFUSION. Why should your baby suckle from you when there’s an easier way?!

8. When your baby still looks hungry after a feeding session, and the next thing you offer is water, he will become even hungrier (and angrier ). Paradoxically, it will seem like your baby never gets satisfied, until you add water.

9. If the weather is hot and dry, there’s a likelihood that your baby will feel more thirsty. But guess what? He still doesn’t need water! Mummy can drink extra amount of water and produce more breast milk!

10. If your baby is sick and you need to mix some water with his medications, that doesn’t count as anything significant. Besides, he’s only going to take the medicine for a few days. Please, do not exceed the exact amount of water required for the mixture. This will not only affect his breast milk intake, but may alter the dosage of the given drug, thereby reducing its efficacy.
