Breast milk: Breast milk is the best. Baby doesn't need any extra water at this age, but can be a method to introduce your child to the cup. I'm so glad to hear that you are breast feeding. This is the perfect food for your baby. We pediatricians recommend breast milk for the first 12 months of age, at a minimum.
