In brief: 6 months
You can start introducing sips of water around 6 months.
Any earlier than that, you worry about disrupting the delicate electrolyte balances in newborns. By the time they're a year, let them have as much as they want. When they're toddlers and they're thirsty, give them water instead of juice.
