How much water?
Feb 2, 2011 4:56PM
We started weaning 2 weeks ago and I read that we need to 'offer' water with each meal which we do, but how much should she be drinking? Luckily she loves water! xxx

I offer her sips every few mouthfuls and then let her have as much as she likes at the end of the meal (she can use the beaker by herself).

How old is your lo? Just asking cos I've just been to see a consultant about dd and her not drinking enough. He told me to start weaning asap and she's 5 months.
At the time i asked about water and he said at this age and up to 6 months, you should only be offering milk and not water.
I give dd baby rice or puree and i sometimes mix the milk in with it and then have the rest of the bottle on the side and encourage her to have some afterwards so she isn't too thirst after eating.
I have asked the same question of my hv and she has said the same thing.
I hope this is of some help x

My lo is 8 months and probably has around 3oz most days and maybe 5oz on a "thirsty" day - but she does still have 3 bottles of milk a day too x

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
