You can always give a baby water as long as it's not taking the place of their regular feedings. I always gave my girls water (filtered or bottled-never straight from the tap) from a very early age. If the baby is already drinking juice then they're old enough for water also. Plus if you're baby has a tendency to fall asleep while drinking their bottle, the water will not hurt their teeth like juices, milk or formulas.
