Keep their water level intact
Till four to six months babes don’t need water intake on top of the breast milk consumed. Breast milk has all the necessary nutrients for the baby which keeps the water level intact. But after six months babies need water as they start having solids. Babies don’t generally feel thirsty in winter so the skin may dry up a bit. So ensure that they take sufficient water during this time.
