    Water can be started after 6 months of age along with other complimentary foods. No special precaution is needed. Water should be filtered, clean and brought to normal temperature before feeding.

  3. Hello Dear,

    Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended till 6 months of age. So nothing is to be given even water during first 6 months. After 6 months of age complementary feeding is started and breast feeding is continued. So as such top milk is not necessarily to be given after six months if breast milk supply is sufficient. But top milk is needed then it should be formula milk rather animal milk till 1 year of age. Animal milk or milk protein should be introduced only after one year of age.
