Why is it Recommended to not Give Babies Under 6 Months Water?

By Nabta Team
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), babies shouldn’t be given water before 6 months even in a hot climate. As breast milk is more than 80% water, it is enough to satisfy your baby’s thirst. Therefore, apart from medically prescribed medicines, a child should be exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months of life.
