No need for giving water till 6months complete. If you're working mother and you are starting weaning then give water well boiled sip by sip at present.

You can continue exclusive breastfeeding till 6 months complete. If baby is passing urine minimum 6-7 times in 24 hrs, no need for water as of now.
