When to start drinking water for a newborn, kids

In the maternity hospital, babies are given glucose in case the mother does not have milk or is not enough. At home, the pediatrician recommends drinking boiled water to a newborn. When to start watering a child and is there a need for it? Let’s try to figure it out.

What pediatricians say and how I acted

Opinions of doctors in this matter are divided. Some argue that an infant should be given almost up to 100 ml of boiled water per day. Others recommend feeding the baby after each feeding, especially if breast milk is fat.

With a lack of water, the gastric juice becomes too thick and cannot cope with the digestion of milk. The baby begins to hurt the stomach and there is constipation. Still others say that if a baby does not want to drink water, then it is not necessary to force it. Who to believe?

And you need to believe your feelings and behavior of the baby. I fed my first child with boiled water for up to six months. Water boiled in an enamelled saucepan, studded, poured into a bottle and gave between feedings.

Why not boiled in a kettle? In the kettle a lot of scum. It is not difficult to get rid of it, but it appears again. Apparently, in our area the water contains too much lime. The taste of tea is interrupted by this nasty taste of scale, and the pan is absolutely clean.

When we had an electric kettle, I began to boil water in it. Yes, and scum wash out of it is much easier, lime does not stick so strongly to the plastic walls. Baby for so long pulling water from a bubble that had to cut a hole a little more. She drank when reluctantly, when with pleasure, but drank about 100-150 ml.

At about four in the morning, she began to add currants in the water, ground with sugar, which she stocked up while pregnant. She also poured boiled water on dried apricots, prunes and raisins, and gave this compote to the baby.

When the mouse was half a year, she began to give her raw water. We have already passed without problems on feeding, so that the raw water from the tap did not cause any unrest in the tummy. But I defended the water in the bank. Lime noticeably settles on the bottom. Then I cooked her porridge on the previously defended water.

Should baby give water only from a bubble?

I can not touch their subsequent children. The second baby did not drink some water from a bubble. I had to drink it with boiled water from a spoon. At first she just licked a spoon. It was necessary to immerse the spoon several times in a glass of water. The third child and the fourth began to drink water only a month and also with a spoon. The first child and the dummy sucked, and the rest didn’t take the dummy and refused the bubble. I did not insist.

Many would argue, they say, gave the child almost dead water in addition to bathing with potassium permanganate. Where does immunity come from? With the rest of my children, I no longer behaved so correctly, therefore, they should have more immunity, but, alas, they get sick more often. The first child is rarely sick. I do not think that this is due to drinking boiled water, but there is no harm from it either.

It will be interesting to hear your opinion.
