Hello ladies! I hope I'm posting this in the right section and that I'm not repeating any old threads.
Here's my problem: lately, the weather was quite warm here (I'm not complaining, we're loving it!), but we're about to leave on a vacation with our 10-month-old son and we risk to end up in an even warmer place (I think we should expect 35-40°C during daytime). Should I offer any water or will the breast milk suffice? If so, how much water do you think I should offer him and how often? Should I give him bottled water or should I give him boiled tap water (we're not leaving the European Union, so I think that the tap water should be safe everywhere we go)?
I breastfeed the little one on demand (I'm at home with him so he has full access to the breasts)and he also has 1 or 2 solid meals a day (usually 1 meal consisting of meat/fish/egg yolk and some veggies and the other meal consisting of some fruit). I spoon-feed him the meat meal, for the rest, I'm doing a baby-led weaning approach. He loves solids and is usually a good eater. I sometimes give him some freshly squeezed fruit juice, but not every day.
Ever since starting him on solids I got a few wet dippers a day and 1 poop dipper every day or every other day so I didn't worry a lot about giving him water - he only drank water once or twice.
He looks well hydrated - wet mucosas, fair amount of drool - despite the warm weather we had lately.
So, what do you ladies suggest I do? Give him water or continue like I did until now?
Thank you for any thought on the matter!
