When can babies start having a little bit of water? Ellie loves playing with a sippy cup. She doesn't really drink much-maybe 2-3 small sips over the course of 20-30 minutes. I have been hand expressing breast milk after I feed her when I get home from workand I give her the cup to play with in a high chair while we are eating dinner. There is so little in there it is hard for her to get any out. Id like to either give her water or water down the breastmilk. It is between a1/2oz- 1 oz of bm that I am hand expressing. I think if i add about 1- 2 oz of water it will make it easier for her to drink.
Is this okay to do?
