Because bf contains enough water to fulfill the requirements of the baby. giving extra water to the baby may cause infection and imbalance of water in the body. Till 6 months only bf..
Giving water to babies less than 6 months can put them to risk of diarrohea. Water may not be clean and can cause infection. Giving water may also cause the baby to have less breast milk therefore causing malnutrition. Breast milk is 80℅ water and if mother feels baby is thirsty, she can breastfeed the baby.
