In general, babies should not drink water until they are about 6 months old. Until then, your baby will be given enough water from breast milk or formula.
Deadly misconceptions about giving babies water to drink
While we are always reminded by nutrition experts to keep drinking enough water and avoid dehydration, that's another story for babies. 

For babies to drink water can be dangerous for babies, even potentially fatal.

The infant's body has not fully developed to consume water. Although only a few milliliters of water, in extreme cases can be fatal.

The body of an average healthy adult is made up of 55-60% of water. On the other hand, the average body of babies is about 75% water. And the difference is why babies should not drink water before they are at least 6 months old. 

Children should not drink any water drops for 6 months
Water will make your baby's stomach feel full, which restricts your baby's cravings. In a few cases, babies who drink too much water may have a condition called "Water intoxication." , this syndrome can cause seizures and even coma. Water intoxication occurs when too much water in the infant's circulatory system dilutes the concentration of sodium in the body, upsetting the electrolyte balance in the baby's body and causing tissue to swell.

Absolutely not through diluting infant formula milk
On top of that, babies' kidneys have not developed enough to properly filter water. So any amount of water that enters your baby's body will go to the circulatory system, resulting in your baby's blood thinning and increasing their water content by 7 to 8%. 

 However, it is not only for children to drink water is a unique threat that poisoning or acquired cases. In fact, most cases of infant water intoxication do not even involve a glass of water. Because of a common mistake, when mothers dilute powdered milk with OVER MUCH water, we happen to supply excess water to the baby.

If unfortunately your baby shows signs of water poisoning, you must take them to the hospital immediately, where the doctor may provide some form of liquid, such as intravenous saline solution, to give The infant's sodium level returned to normal. 

So what to do if your baby is dehydrated?
Water shortage is also not possible!

In some cases - for example, if your baby has stomach flu (gastroenteritis) - your doctor may recommend giving your baby electrolytes such as Pedialyte or Infalyte to help prevent dehydration.

Electrolyte water for babies when dehydrated
In the US, most parents have found Pedialyte electrolyte bottles placed close to the shelves near baby formula. It is an electrolyte drink, similar to Gatorade, that provides the electrolytes needed for your child. 

Similarly Marathon runners often use electrolyte drinks such as salted lemonade, sports drinks such as Gatorade to rehydrate when dehydrated due to movement, hot weather, sweating. , etc ... 

In this case Pedialyte water replaces electrolytes lost due to diarrhea and vomiting of the child. This product is not a medicine so it will not prevent your baby from getting sick. However, it will help your child feel better when they have these symptoms. Also try other methods to help reduce these symptoms.

The reason mothers use Pedialyte for babies is because this is a specialized product to help them avoid dehydration. When a child vomits or diarrhea a few times in a short time, he or she will be at risk of dehydration. Dehydration in babies is also quite dangerous, and babies need to be treated immediately.

In the early stages of life babies are quite immature and need to overcome the challenges of the environment to adapt and develop. However, your baby's immune system will be designed to cope with those agents - this is truly a miracle of nature so mothers are assured and what is important is to help them overcome. this period. Take care of children properly and scientifically.
