June 12, 2009, Newsletter Issue #133: If Baby Doesn't Drink Water

Tip of the Week

If you are having a hard time getting your baby to drink water (beginning at age 6 months, babies should drink about 4 oz. of water a day) a good way of getting some extra water in them is to add an ounce in with your milk or formula.
Just mix it in the bottle every time you feed her milk or formula. Add a total of 3 or 4 oz a day. So make it about a half-ounce or an ounce every time she has a bottle.
*Of course, check with her pediatrician first before you alter her food or liquid intake.
