To water or not to water

I saw Suki, my anti-natal allie on Friday and she has started he little girl on solids too. We both questioned whether we should now give our bundles of joy water aswell as breast milk. The general conscensus was yes, which was confirmed at the new mother’s dinner party. So I put some cooled boiled water in a bottle and handed it to Erbie at the table on Sunday. He just need a bit of help angling the bottle high enough, but took a good drink. I took it away afterwards as I don’t want him to fill himself up on water, but it was lovely to see him take his first taste. Suki’s little girl has got her first tooth already and she’s 3 weeks younger than Erbie.
