coconut water can be given in very little amounts around 20-40 ml as it is very high in potassium. And a baby's developing kidneys can not handle high amounts of potassium. Nimbu pani should be avoided as it is sour. You can give butter milk or any fruit juice. Similarly introduction of sugar this early can lead to tooth decay from the first tooth itself. There are chances of your child developing a sweet tooth and would reject other taste.
