It's summer, doesn't my baby need water so he doesn't dehydrate?

No, a breastfed baby does not require anything other than your milk. Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for the first six months. Your milk will adjust to ensure that your baby gets all the fluids she needs to stay hydrated. You will likely want to drink more fluids to meet your extra fluid needs.

To encourage, promote and provide breastfeeding, chest feeding and human milk feeding support and educational opportunities as an important contribution to the health of children, families and society
