Forum home Babies Breast & bottle feeding

Can you add water?


I have a vague memory of reading or being told that I can add water (boiled and cooled) to expressed breast milk. Has anyone done this or heard anything about it?



  • No need hon - bm changes to what the baby needs, so on ahot day for instance, it is more watery naturally. LO gets everything it needs in terms of food and drink from bm.

    I have just started introducing cooled boiled water now as I've started weaning.xx
  • thanks, was wondering as I cant express much at a time and wondered if I could add water to up the amount in the bottle!
