I can't remember if you are supposed to or not...

I think with FF you should and with BF, you don't, though I could be wrong. I've been offering water (cooled boiled) to L but she spits it out.

Someone I know is giving her 3 month old baby juice.... I despair!

It's probably a good idea to give FF babies a bit of water or dilute one bottle of their milk a bit more in this heat to prevent dehydration, but BF babies don't need it - I suspect that they'll just feed more often to get the thirst quenching foremilk. Baby juice at 3 months is completely unnecessary, but at least it's not cola I suppose!

my thoughts exactly.

I'd give a ff baby water but not bf baby especially as it is so hot at the moment.

Thanks all. She feeds every three hours so I'm sure she's not dehydrated. We are out tomorrow though so will take water with us

I've been giving W cooled boiled water as he is giving me his feeding que's sometimes and hour after I've given him his bottle. I don't like to give him a lot though as I'm worried it might cause an upset tummy or something.
