Is it ok to give some boiled water to 3 month old baby? She is under formula since I have less breast milk.and she drinks 2oz every hour.

In brief: No water!

We don't want to give your baby water at this age.
She should have either breast milk or properly mixed formula. 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!
