Why Babies Shouldn’t Drink Water Before 6 Months

While “water intoxication” might sound like an amazing, cost-saving new happy hour technique, it’s actually a condition in babies who consume even small amounts of water before their systems are ready for it. That’s because a baby gets nearly all the hydration they need through breast milk or formula, so their kidneys aren’t developed to handle water. Keep your kid on the boob or bottle for now, and check with the doctor before introducing water.
