Water in small babies can result in a low sodium level in the bloodstream which can lead to seizures! Congrats on breastfeeding your baby! Even with formula supplement, breastmilk is giving baby very important immune system benefits and protection from infection! ...Read more

La leche is a great resource. The last resort is of course to supplement with formula. ...Read more
