Yesterday brought in the beginning of a summer heat wave that is slated to last for a while. LO has entered a stage of great distractibility . . . that coupled with her feeling the heat a tremendous amount is making nursing a challenge. She's not wanting to nurse for as long - and her diaper output yesterday was drastically reduced. My concern is that she gets enough milk to keep her hydrated (she sweats like crazy!). Is there a valid reason for giving her water during this extreme heat and humidity? LL is 18 weeks tomorrow.
We stay indoors when it's very hot. I'm just concerned as the summer unfolds as to whether I should be offering her a little water or not.
