I know I heard somewhere that water was bad for newborns b/c of an electrolyte imbalance or something like that, but Chloe is 9 mos now, and I think she can have water. But how much would be too much? She usually doesn't drink it everyday (it's more of a plaything, something to amuse her than for thirst) but I don't want to give her too much.
She doesn't eat many solids, she nurses all the time. I'm trying to get her to eat more, but she prefers to nurse and I do what's easiest.. I guess I'm a wimp or something. She likes table food and some of the Gerber snacks, but I'm at a lose as to how to get her to eat solids too. We don't have a set schedule on how we eat, and so I don't know if I should make one for her. When she's hungry she'll attack my shirt and usually will get mad if I offer her anything that isn't the boob. Any advice?
