Hi,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

All babies under the age of 6 months should be exclusively breast fed. So that is what is recommended for your baby.

Exclusive breast feeding means giving only breast feeding and nothing else including water.
Start other feeds after the age of six months. Continue to breast feed till the age of 2 years.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
