TOO MUCH WATER FOR BABIES UNDER ONE YEAR OLD MAY CAUSE PARALYSIS OR DEATH ?


1. DON'T FEED THE BABY UNDER 1 YEAR OLD WITH TOO MUCH WATER!

Adults are advise to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to keep hydrated. But for babies especially those below one year old, drinking water can be dangerous and can lead to babies seizures, coma, brain damage and death.

2. DON'T DILUTE BREAST MILK WITH WATER

Breast milk provides all the fluid healthy babies need. NOTHING ELSE. In cases where Breast Milk is not enough, formula milk can serve as supplement. 
Experts says that "if a mother feels her baby needs to take additional water, it should be limited to two to three ounces at a time and should be offered only after the baby has satisfied his hunger with breast feeding or formula."

It becomes an eye opener and we would like to warn parents especially mothers about this very tragic event, a couple lost their less than 3-month old baby because they feed the baby with breast milk diluted with water.




Watch this video here about Studies that shows that formula or milk stretching is more common than generally thought. Pediatricians warn of potential effects.

3. DON'T DILUTE FORMULA MILK WITH TOOOOOO MUCH WATER

Is it okay to dilute formula milk with more water than the instruction in the label?

Babycenter moms has this to say:

"NONONONONONONO!!!! babies have died because of this! I used to work in an emergency room and we had young babies come in so sick, and so weak and so malnourished it would just break your heart. Their mothers would say "well, I was just trying to save some money on formula" IT IS NOT WORTH YOUR BABY'S LIFE. Incidentally it is also a HUGE problem in Africa where the formula companies are making a big push there to get mothers to use formula instead of breastfeed but the mothers can't read the English instructions on the cans. Hundreds of babies are dying because they are not getting enough nutrients. Don't let him do this, make the formula yourself if you have to!"
