When is it OK to introduce water?
« on: August 14, 2012, 02:47:14 pm »

Hi mga mommies!
 
I've been getting different opinions about giving water sa infants. My daughter is 3 months old pa lang and my MIL , aunts and other concerned neighbours advised me na bigyan sya ng water after inom ng milk, kahit konti lang. However, I read before na giving water to young infants, could be dangerous. Kasi it creates an imbalance sa milk and its elements/nutrients within the baby's body daw. I ;D havent asked my baby's pedia yet, pero for moms here, kelan nyo po binigyan ng water babies nyo? May I know sino po nag-advise sa inyo?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!  ;D

Mod's note:
Please Wait Until Your Baby Is 6 Months Old Before Giving Him Water

Hi sis! nung one month si baby Freia ko exclusive BF sya so advise ni pedia ok lang kasi wag bigyan water kasi may water content na yung breastmilk pero pinapainom pa din namen sya water..

Ang alam ko kapag naka formula milk dapat talaga bigyan ng water para hindi maconstipate si baby..

Pero better ask your pedia.. as of now na 1year and 3 months na si Freia ok naman sya.. mahilig sya sa water :D

My pedia advised me to give water after every feeding kasi bottle fed babies ko. Ang alam ko ang di puwede ay yung dilute mo yung formula niya as in 1 is to 2 instead of 1 is to 1.

Thank you po sa mga replies nyo!

Nung first 2 months si baby pure breastfed sya so I understand na there's no need to give her water. Pero now po most of the time, formula na iniinom ni baby pero I still don't give her water. Hindi naman sya constipated kasi medyo runny yung poop niya and she poops once every single day.

i was adamant too on giving water to my baby when he was 2 - 3 months, akala ko hindi pwede. but then since my baby is bottle fed, i was advised by his pedia to give water from time to time. it helps to clean his tongue and gums too.

yah need talaga nila yung water lalo na kung formula sila kasi pang clense din yun dahil yung formula milk kasi namumuo yun sa dila kaya pansinin mo after nilang mag drink ang kapal ng puti sa dila nila..

i gave my daughter water when she started with solids at 6 months. this was her pedia's advise. since my baby was breastfed (still is, actually), there's no need to give her water daw. i'm not sure with formula fed babies, though.

same with sis FV's mom ang advise ng pedia namin..i remember monthly checkup ni baby, yun ang in-ask ng pedia niya, if bf daw ba or formula...sabi kasi yung bf kung mapapansin mo, hindi sya kasing thick ng formula and may enough water na sya so no need na if bf ka na bigyan ng water si baby..pero kapag formula, need niya ng water kasi pang cleanse and pra hindi nga maconstipate...ok din naman siguro na introduce mo na sa kanya ang water since 3 mons na din sya and sooner mag-iintroduce kana sa kanya ng solid foods so mahalagang mahilig sya magwater :)

Hi sis! Share ko experience ko with my daughter. Nung baby siya, ayaw niya talaga uminom ng water kahit konti. Natakot ako kasi alam ko important din water sa kaniya then sabi ng pedia niya haluan daw ng karo syrup but ayaw pa din niya. So hindi ko na lang pinilit since malakas naman siya magmilk. Wala namang masamang effect sa baby ko. Pero dapat talaga umiinom ng water mga baby lalo na pag nagssolids na siya.

Good luck sis =)

i've asked 3 pedias na regarding this.

2 ang nagsabing babies don't need water pa. MIL nangungulit bigyan daw ng water :(
minsan lang kami magbigay water kay baby, 4mos old.

ako din i found it weird when my eldest's pedia told me not to give water pa daw until 6 months or until she eats solid foods..  :o pero nung medyo tumigas yung poop niya, nagbigay ako ng konting water.. wala namang masamang nangyari..
