Hi Holly! When is coconut water safe to give to your infant? I have a girlfriend who has been giving it to her baby for months now. Is it safe?

Hi Bernadette! As soon as the baby is eating solid foods it’s ok to give coconut water. Before that the baby is getting all of his or her required liquids from breastmilk (hopefully) or formula.

I think its safe and healthier. So don’t be scared. I gave my 7months old baby coconut water and he loved it.

Hi, I am giving my son who is 12 months old now water of 1 coconut/day. Is this too much and is it bad for his teeth? Thanks.
