as a doctor am advising my patients to stick on exclusive breastfeeding before 6 months.. the reasons are ...maximum developments including brain development occurs during this stage. any food rather than bm will reduce the level of nutrients needed for development,n it will affect the immunity of the child too.. water intake will reduce the sodium level leafing to hyponatraemia.. even in hot temperature bm is sufficient,just watch the urine output of the child,if he passes more than 8 times per day,he s getting enough water from bm,mother should drink more water during feeding period

no need to give water. mothers milk has all contents. if u give additional water, then her intake of milk get reduced. so no need to give separately
