So my S.I.L. is driving me crazy! She keeps asking me if we've started Preston on drinking water. I've never felt the need too because in my opinion he gets plenty of water from his formula.
She knows that we've started Preston on solid foods. So again she asks "have you started him on water?". I tell her no. So then she goes on this rant about how he should have started water before starting solid foods because it's easier to digest. Blah blah blah. She is one of those people that thinks she knows everything about everything. (She's not a doctor.) She's had 1 child. Between my DF and I, we have 5.
I never gave Reilly water before starting solid foods 7 years ago.
My doctor has never mentioned starting water first before solid foods.
Preston drinks approximately 4 x 8oz bottles per day. I think that has decreased very slightly since starting solid foods, but not very much. Honestly, why would a 6 month need more water then that?
I'm curious to know what some of you ladies think about this
