    Default Does baby NEED water??

    Does a breastfeeding almost 10 month old baby need water to drink in addition to the breast-milk?

    DD is pregnant again while breastfeeding and really sick, vomiting etc.

    Thanks for your help!!

    As long as the baby is producing enough wet diapers then no. There is no need to add water. I didn't give my children water till almost 2 years old. Breast milk is considered the same as water as far as hydration goes.
