Is Propel Water Ok For Toddler
Varies a lot: A normal 4 year-old who drinks 6 oz at breakfast/lunch/dinner, and 4 oz at 3 snack times, gets 30 oz/day. Drinking more is ok, as long as he is not drinking sugared drinks. Drinking less is ok if his urine is light yellow (first morning pee is darker) during the day. If his urine is medium or dark yellow, he should drink more water. If the child is healthy, a parent can avoid battles over water. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Son is 2y old,still boiling the drinking water for him(although bottled water),in egypt afraid of water even bottled,is okay? Or water loses sodium?
Boiled is safer: Water that has been boiled is safer, because germs and parasites have been cooked. People get their sodium from salt in food. In modern societies, we already eat too much sodium, and therefore need no additional sodium from our water. Other ways to make water safe include using special water filters and adding a specific tiny amount of bleach to partially treated water. ...Read more
Buying water that says steam distilled w/added flouride to make my 23 day old formula. Just wondering if its safe for him to drink?
Yes, it is safe: Small amounts of Fluoride are both safe and help protect the erupted teeth from tooth decay. Like vitamin c, iron, oxygen, and other things to much is not good. To much Fluoride over an extended time can cause dental fluorosis of permanent teeth and in extreme cases skeletal fluorosis. This will not happen from drinking water that is optimally fluoridated. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it ok to give a 3 wk newborn an ounce of water to help with bowel movements? And if so, nursery water or bottle water?
No: Never give a baby water at this age! Water intoxication can happen in even small amounts. Think of it this way, formula and breast milk have just the right amount of sodium ( or "salt") in them. When you give a tiny baby water without the proper mix of salt, it drops the relative concentration of sodium in the bloodstream, causing seizures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not recommended: Check with your local water utility. If your tap water is fluoridated or has substantial natural Fluoride (0.7 mg/l or higher), consider using a low-fluoride alternative water source. The american dental association recommends not using water that contains high levels of Fluoride when mixing powdered or concentrated baby formula. Too much Fluoride puts your baby at risk for enamel fluorosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My baby is 5 month 2weeks old, his milk intake is only 3-4oz every 3.5-4 hrs, is it okay? He likes to drink plain water, can he drink as much as 2oz?
No worries: Every child is different. The volume of intake is important but more important is the growth of your child. If he is growing well along his growth curve and meeting his milestones, pooping and peeing well, then his milk intake is fine. Yes he can have 2 oz of water. As long as water is not replacing meals he is fine. Water is wonderful for hydration and flushing toxins and keeping bowels moving. ...Read more
No: Fluoride in public water supplies have been shown to be safe and effective. In fact, it is the single best way to strengthen developing teeth. Just make sure your child does not get vitamins with Fluoride in addition. In that case, the total Fluoride intake would be too much. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is drinking water after dinner a safe . Or is it harmful to stomach/digestion .
I tend to drink 1 litre of warm water after my dinner . Is it safe .
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A few thoughts...: An 8 month old baby is exploring his world, so he gets plenty of germs anyway (so water need not be distilled, but just of drinking quality). Secondly, babies are designed to drink breastmilk whenever they are thirsty or hungry, so water is not needed (formula is ok). A few ounces of water a day is fine to give, but breastmilk or formula is more nutritious. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
