Re: Giving water to babies / water for bottles ?'s

I was wondering what age too! We just use the filter that's on our faucet for our older kids, but it was 102 this weekend, so I let my 9month old drink some water too. I know they say water is a no-no for babies under 1yr, but it is SOO hot, and he wasn't peeing as much as usual because I think he's sweating it all out (as are we). So do you think it's ok in extreme heat to give plain water to an infant between feedings?
Sara If I'm slow to respond, it's possibly because I care for 3 non-napping children while being involved in a preschool co-op, a veggie co-op, a bible study group, and training for a 5k. I am a little busy.
