It seems that you have started with the habit of giving water with sugar and hence baby has got habituated . Now to remove the habit, do not give water for some days. If baby is on breast milk then as such water needs are less and baby needs only 1-2 tsp of water after every solid feed. Also make sure you do not add any sugar to any of baby's solid feeds or milk feeds.
