I am breastfeeding, should I also give my baby water?

Breast milk is all your baby needs, and we recommend you give for the at least the first six months of life. Breast milk contains a large amount of water as it is, but in hotter weather, you might need to breastfeed more frequently, as your baby demands, to prevent dehydration.
