Hi, my baby also of same age, he just entered into 7 month. Usually this age baby should not give more water specially 160 ml, it's really huge amount. Mostly maximum amount should be give 60 ml in 24 h. baby who drinks too much water can develop a condition known as water intoxication, which can cause seizures and even a coma. Water intoxication happens when too much water dilutes the concentration of sodium in the body, upsetting the electrolyte balance and causing tissues to swell. Also breast feeding babies should not required more water because mother milk contains 80% water. Once baby starts solids means other than milk, you might want to give him a few sips of water with his solids to babies need to prevent constipation. Usually I am giving 10-15 ml after food one time in day. Now I am giving him semi liquid diet one time in day, so ultimately in day I am offering him 10-15 ml water. Other time in day I am offering him breastfeeding and 2 time for formula feeding. Dr. Shubhangi Ramakrishnan, Ph. D
