    Keep going with the breastfeeding OP - nice work so far!
    The extra sucking may be nothing to do with thirst, she may be trying to build your supply in preparation for a growth spurt so giving water would stuff that right up.

    I know it's exhausting, rest up, drink heaps, eat some more Christmas leftovers and pop on a DVD.

    Good luck x.

    If she's thirsty she won't need a lot of milk to feel better. The first milk she gets has more water in it than the hindmilk so she will just have a little drink and be done. It's normal. Babies are pretty good at knowing what they need and your milk will also change according to what she needs so no need to give her any water.

    DITTO all the PPs who say no water.

    And, when after six months you do start giving them water, remember that yes it is true that you can really harm a baby by giving it too much water.
