    Default Wet season in Darwin should I give water?

    Dd is 5 months old and we are heading for holiday to Darwin for a week and thinking maybe I need to give her some water while we are there? I tested her with a tiny bit in a sippy cup last night and she went fine but not sure what to do with giving water as I don't want to throw out her electrolytes out! So what do all you mummies do?

    If you breastfeed just offer more feeds.

    Between feeds just randomly offer sips of water, or add more water to each bottle. You want to start getting her used to water sooner rather than later.
