Availability of Drinking Water

Clean, sanitary drinking water should be readily accessible in indoor and outdoor areas, throughout the day. On hot days, infants receiving human milk in a bottle may be given additional human milk, and those receiving formula mixed with water may be given additional formula mixed with water.  Infants should not be given water, especially in the first six months of life.
