    I usually gave a sippy of water with meals. She hardly drank any though. I nursed on demand so if after she ate and wanted to nurse I would let her. When she was 1 then I started letting her have the cup all day and she drank to thirst.

    I started giving water with meals at 6 months when we introduced solids. At 11 months he gets the sippy whenever he wants but he probably consumes maybe 3 oz all day. I figure it's ok because he nurses like 10 times a day still!

    It's true as long as you are nursing on demand there is no need for water. I didn't give my DD1 water till after 2. I only gave her breast milk when she was thirsty, it's considered a clear liquid.

    Why wouldn't you nurse a 7 month old after a "meal" breast milk is still supposed to be their primary source of nutrition till 1. Foods are just practice till then.
