Can you give a 2 month old baby food?

Feeding the 2-3 Month Old Baby. Babies don't need solids until 4 to 6 months of age. Breast milk or formula has all the nutrients babies need. Sometimes solids given too early can cause food allergies.

Also, when should you start giving your baby water?

When your 4-6 month old baby is learning to use a cup, giving him a few sips of water a couple of times a day (no more than 2 ounces per 24 hours) is fine and fun. Once baby starts solids, you might want to give him a few sips of expressed milk or water with his solids – some babies need this to prevent constipation.

When can I give water to my baby?

In general, your baby shouldn't drink water until he's about 6 months old. Until then, he gets all the hydration he needs from breast milk or formula, even in hot weather. Once your baby is 6 months old, it's okay to give him sips of water when he's thirsty.

Can you give water to a 3 month old baby?

I agree, a little water won't hurt your infant, but at three months your baby needs the breastmilk/formula for the nutrients. Once they begin solid foods there is a baby pedialyte that can be given if your child becomes dehydrated, but I would talk to your pediatrician first.
