Answer:
you should not give water/other liquids to an infant below 6 months of age. The infants have small tummies but large needs of energy and nutrients. So, you should not fill it with just plain water/liquids and reduce their intake of nutrients and energy. Instead give them more milk, to take care of their extra fluid needs in summers.
