Yes, but precaution: Most infants should get enough fluid in their diet and formula. In warm weather, offering some extra water is fine, any approved brand is fine. Depending on local flouride levels, she may need fl drops but check w/ your md. But distilled water has no flouride. Be sure she is not taking water at times she should be getting formula.
