hi all. not sure what to do but my 7 month old is driving me batty. she loooooves water (which is a good thing cos there are so many that dont and their parents struggle getting them to drink it later on) i am so happy she does but everytime i take a drink from my bottle or she sees us with a bottle in hand she bounces up and down, crawls furiously towards us and starts yelling (more like ahhhh ing) at us constantly until we let her drink from our bottle. the thing thats bugging me is i have to drink about 4lts a day (to keep my milk supply up) so i am constantly taking sips of water and she is demanding it every time. if we put it back in the fridge without giving her some she screams and crys. i then try bf her but she is still not happy. im worried that if i give her water when she demands it she wont bf as she is full on water.
we live in darwin so its reallllly hot here so i give her a little bit of water every day to make sure she doesnt get dehydrated. and also she crawls so she is using up alot of energy and getting hot. but im afraid it might be too much water.
