Answer . As a general rule, no! Mineral water usually contains high levels of minerals, such as sodium, fluoride or calcium, that a baby's kidneys cannot tolerate. Spring water too, should be avoided, as there is no requirement to list the mineral contents and this too could be lethally high for …a baby. The only safe bottled waters for baby will be labelled as such.. If you need to give your baby water, it is best to use boiled and cooled tap water. (MORE)
Answer . Of course it is. Everybody should have water. Milk and formula should probably be reccomended because of all the nutrients that are good for the growth and developement of a baby..
You have to feed it baby wild bird food. You can get at a pet store and get a syringe to feed it with.Then, you have to add warm water, but make sure the water is not too hot. Then, mix up the food with the water, and you load it up into the syringe. Then when you feed it, it will let you know how m…uch it wants to eat. The mother will feed it. (MORE)
NEVER give a baby owl water to drink! Owls obtain liquids from the foods they consume. It is illegal to keep an owl as a pet in the US. In the US, all native migratory birds are protected under federal law (Migratory Bird Treaty Act), and owls are further protected by various state and f…ederal laws. It is illegal to keep a protected bird unless you have the required permits, and these permits are never given for the purpose of keeping an owl as a pet. Some people who may be licensed to keep owls (but NOT as pets) are licensed wildlife rehabilitation specialists, certain ornithologists and wildlife biologists who demonstrate a need to have an owl for research or educational purposes, certain zoos, and some falconers. The penalty for violating the Migratory Bird Treaty Act includes fines of up to $500 and jail time of up to 6 months; for hawks, eagles and owls, the penalties can be much higher. If you found a baby owl, you need to put it back where you found it, or get it to a licensed wildlife rehabilitation specialist. Baby birds fledge (leave the nest) several days before they start to fly. They hop around on the ground, and they climb on low branches until their wings are strong enough for them to fly. The parent birds continue to feed and care for the fledglings until they are self-sufficient. If you see a baby bird on the ground, and the bird has most of his feathers, leave him alone. Do not think that he needs to be "rescued." If you see a baby bird on the ground, and the baby is naked or he has mostly fuzz, he is a nestling and is not ready to fledge out. Try to put him back in the nest. Do not worry about your scent being on him. It won't bother the mother. Birds do not have an acute sense of smell, and the parents will not detect your scent on the baby. Wildlife biologists and bird-banders handle baby birds all the time - they are licensed to do so - and the parent birds never abandon their babies because of this. If you can not get the nestling back into his own nest, hang a basket (like an Easter basket) on a tree limb as close to the nest as you can reach. Place paper towel in the bottom of the basket, and put some grass and leaves in with the baby bird. The parents find their babies by sound, not by sight or smell, so as long as they can hear the baby, they will come and feed him. Placing it on a high limb will keep cats and other predators from getting it, as they would if you left it on the ground. If you find a baby bird on the ground, and it seem to have been injured by the fall - or if you find an injured adult bird - contact a licensed wildlife rehabilitation specialist. Licensed wildlife rehabilitation specialists have the specialized training to care for sick, injured and orphaned wild animals, and they have the required state and federal licenses that allow them to keep the wild animals until they are healthy enough to be released. Do not take the animal to a vet - vets are for pets, and most vets do not have the expertise to care for wild animals; nor do most vets have the proper licenses that would allow them to keep a recuperating wild animal. Do not attempt to keep a wild bird and care for it yourself. Remember - in the US, all native migratory birds are protected under federal law (Migratory Bird Treaty Act), and it is illegal to keep any protected bird unless you have the required permits. Penalties for violating this law include fines of up to $500 and/or up to 6 months in jail for each offense. While preparing an injured bird to go to the specialist in rehabilitation, place him in a small box lined with paper towel - not cloth, as the bird's nails could get caught in the material. Cover the box and place it in a warm, dark, quiet area. Do not allow any animals, children or excitable adults near it. Do not attempt to feed the bird - if you do not know what species it is, you don't know what to feed it (different species of owls eat different things), and an inexperienced person can kill a bird attempting to feed it. Do not attempt to give it any water - it could aspirate and die, and owls do not drink water. Get it to a specialist in rehabilitation as quickly as possible, within 4-6 hours if possible. (MORE)
without teeth: don't try to do it yourself, call a petshop, or a wildlife rehabilitator now! With teeth: but a gallon fish tank,mouse food,and heat pad. Turn the hat pad on low, place the tank on-top of the heating pad, place two to four inches of shredded toilet paper in the bottom of the tank, c…ut the center of a toilet paper roll in half to make a tunnel, place one half under a thin layer of paper, the other half on-top of the shredded paper, and then get a water/soda bottle cap, place inside of a jam jar cap or a larger lid (to catch any water that is spilled, and fill center cap ONLY with CLEAN water. Now get some cheese (American) tear into four quarters, and then put two quarters aside in the fridge, and one quarter in the half tunnel on top of the paper, and the other in the burred tunnel.

Baby rabbits don't drink water, they drink milk from their mother. Once they're weaned, they drink water just like adult rabbits do: by using their tongue.
Baby rabbits should drink their mother's milk. Once they're weaned (at about 6 weeks), baby rabbits should have unlimited access to three things: . water . alfalfa hay, or an alfalfa-grass mix (like alfalfa-timothy) . high-quality pellets (see question below for details about pellets) At …12 weeks, small amounts of fresh dark leafy greens (like romaine lettuce) can be introduced. Always introduce new foods carefully. Start with just a bite or two, and stick to one new food at a time (wait a week or two before the next new food). Day by day, little by little, increase the portion size. Baby rabbits don't need a big salad: only about 1/2 ounce for an average-sized baby (baby giant breeds, a bit more; baby dwarf breeds, a bit less). At 6 months , tiny amounts of fresh fruit and non-leafy vegetables (like carrot) can be introduced as a treat. A small bite or two is enough! Too many treats will make a rabbit sick. Between 7 and 13 months , rabbits should slowly transition to an adult diet. See the related links/questions below for details and helpful info. (MORE)
Don't let them drink it. Chances are, a little won't hurt them, but its not a good habit to deveplop. Especially, if there are alot of chemicals in it.
You haev to put plenty of food and water for the mother and babies. Just try to put it as far from the babies/nest as possible, and do it as fast as you can.
Im not super sure but I think the mother teaches them when they are done drinking milk. It is kind of an instinct. You might want to lower it so it is easier for them to drink out of.
You can start your baby on cereal at about four months. Mix it with a bit of formula or breast milk. If he doesn't like it or it seems he is spitting it all out, wait a week and try again. Always consult your pediatrician first to confirm that your baby is ready.
you should give it goats milk if its only 1 to 3 weeks old but if its 4 or higher give it pea cons (my squirrel use to love them before he got killed by my window :c:c:c:c:c:c D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D I fed mine Just Born Puppy Milk Replacer, and then started weaning it at roughly 8 weeks of age. Afte…r it's weaned you should feed it mostly veggies with nuts like pecans being more of a treat since a diet of mostly nuts and seeds is very unhealthy for the squirrel. (MORE)
it depends how old it is. if you bought it definitly! if you found it I'm not sure probably stick to milk but not stuff from your fridge- something like puppy milk ect.
If you are serious about helping this baby, find a wildlife rehabilitator. You can find them online by state. . I am a wildlife rehabilitator and as cute as they are, you do NOT want to do this. I know. They are adorable when they are small...but befor each feeding, you have to rub their genitals …to make them pee or their bladders will explode. You can't feed them from a bottle because they are hogs and suck up milk till it comes out their nose and if they don't sneeze enough, they can get pnuemonia and die. And you have to feed them 5x a day but sometimes they won't take food when you think they should and you end up giving them feedings during the night until you get them hungry enough without killing them, to eat when you think they should. When they are full, you have to make them pee again-at least until they get older...and you have to keep rubbing while they pee or they'll stop when you stop. Oh...and you'll need a gram scale to make sure they are gaining the proper amount of weight. They'll slowly die if they aren't gaining enough. You have to keep them warm, but not too warm or they'll die and if they get too cold...they'll die. . Here's some good information: . http://www.orphanedwildlifecare.com/woodchuckcare.htm I hope anyone thinking it would be easy to raise a baby groundhog reads this and changes their mind...;-) (MORE)
No do not feed chicks anything but starter chick food! It has everthing that a chick needs to get a good start in life.
When they are very young, all they need is their mother's milk. They can have water when they are older and weened from the mother.
Yes, as long as it has been boiled and allowed to cool.Boiling the water kills any germs or bacteria in the water,a baby's immune system doesn't work as well as a adults.
They don't drink water, it gets moture from the food it eats. So do not give them water ,it will drown. . Baby birds are feed on the food that there mother ingests; and regerdjetates the food into thie chiks mouth. This food is liqiud, (vomit) so like the frist answer says. Baby birds get the m…iosture that the need from the food they eat. And depending on the age of the chick; older ones enjoy a small amount of water to play in. It must be shallow until it is adult, then you can fill a regular bird water cup tht comes with your cage. If this is wild bird, I sure your thaught is that you are going to get it well and let it fly away!! In my life wene I was younger( ok, maybe a few times now) I have atempted to care for a baby bird that had fallen out of the nest. Within the next 48 hours they all passed away. Unfortunetly someyimes the baby is sick and the mother knows it. To protect her other babies shes pushes the sick chick out of the nest. And then a sweet human comes along to save it only to get a broken heart later. (MORE)
I started at about 5 months. My doctor told me to because my child was always hungry. remember you can always water it down for the consistancy that you want.
Probably when it starts walking around and its eyes are open. As far as I know, most baby mammals don't start to drink water until they are almost completely weaned. Guinea pigs would have to be an exception though; their babies are precocious and drink water from a bottle a day or two after birth.
drinking water has been found to increase the severity of newborn jaundice."But those who are given water as well will become more jaundiced, and this makes them sleepy and lethargic."
well actually u could feed them a few but it depends on how much they an handle
chick has dried out completely and is fluffy, you can lightly tap your finger in the water and it should instinctly know how to drink. i also hold the chick whilst dipping it's beak into the water as soon as its ready to be moved into the incubator. If you are hatching via broody hens, dont worry, t…he mother will teach its chicks to drink!. hope this helps (MORE)
Probably At the age 2 because that's when they have their teeth you know........ So I'll say about the age 2.....
Yes, if it is abandoned by its mother you have the chance to save its life. If you find a abandoned baby pigeon feed it bread soaked in milk or water with tweezers. Take a Cotton bud and put it in a bowl of water, then let the pigeon suck on the Cotton part. that will give it enough water. feed it e…very half an hour or when it seems hungry. depending on how old the pigeon is you will need to let it free when it can fly. Pigeons learn to fly at about 4 weeks, so let it fly about in your house when it is about 3 weeks and a half. if it has got all its flight feathers and you are confident it can fly very well and find food for itself, then let it free in your garden!

Its best just to leave the hamster be and not mess up their diets and cause other problems like diarrhea. Aditional vitamins can be bought which can be added to the hamsters water, but I found when I tried this my hamster stopped drinking the water, which is crucial at this time.
Buy another baby dormouse and put him in the blender, then feed the other dormouse to him(he will not know the difference)
Your mother hamster winter white had start feeding her babies her own dried food at day 10 should you lower the water bottle for the baby ham to drink as well?
I'm not quite sure about ww but I have campbells. The babies started eating small seeds at ~8days as snacks and they don't drink water as they still get milk from their mom. However just lower your water bottle b/c you have to do that sooner or later. Hope this helps :)
I think your hamster is feeding the baby..but maybe you doesn't realise it or doesn't know it...Hamster are nocturnal, they sleep in the day and wake up in the night.http://wiki.answers.com/Are_hamster_a_nocturnal_animals#ixzz19q8JCj2v
No. For the first 7 weeks, they should only get milk from their mother or kitten formula purchased from a pet store. They will wean between 7 and 10 weeks of age.
By dipping its beak in the water, then tilting it's head back and drinking it.
It is not recommended to give your baby any water until 6 months old. The baby gets all the water it needs from the breastmilk and water can actually be harmful for the baby's immature urinary system. If you have concerns about your baby being dehydrated, you should call your pediatrician or local W…IC (Women, Infants, Children) office. (MORE)
Drinking water while breast feeding is actually a smart and prudent thing to do. When the situation allows, such as when nursing at home, the best thing to do is to have a glass of water close at hand. It is very important for a nursing mother to stay well hydrated. After all, breast milk is primari…ly water and that water needs to be replenished for the mother's best health. If a nursing mother is not prone to drinking alot of water, she should make sure that she has another source of additional fluids. Natural fruit juices, herbal teas, and the like are good additions to drinking water. Of course stay away from alcoholic and caffeinated drinks as these will pass on negative substances to your baby. So drink up mothers! And nurse well and long! (MORE)
Because if you do not feed your baby it will die and you will have committed a crime for which you will be arrested.
Well think about it, other things the mother eats affects the baby so probably alcohol does too.
Any commercially sold fish food can be fed to crappie. Also any insect you can catch and small bits of earthworm are good.
if the gerbil is a pet, it will mostly take a couple hours, or even some minutes. if not, show him that the water is for drinking, and he will most likely investigate, and then drink.
In general, it's not a good idea to give your baby water until he's about 6 months old. Until then, he'll get all the hydration he needs from breast milk or formula, even in hot weather. Giving a baby younger than 6 months old too much water can interfere with his body's ability to absorb the nutr…ients in breast milk or formula. It can also cause his tummy to feel full, which curbs his desire to feed. (While small sips of water probably won't hurt your baby, it's best to check with his doctor before hand during those first six months.) My mother has had 4 kids. Being the second I've watched 2 grow up, i know this from experience my mom is very finicky about giving her children the foods and drinks they need at the right time. (MORE)
no. i read on an article that children up to 3 years old should not drink the water. Children 4 to 12 can only drink the lower level of alkalinic water.
I feed mine chick crumbs ( you can get them from most farm stores). I read in a book that they should have constant access to food and a shallow bowl of water, but mine eat the food as soon as I give it to them, so I tend to just feed them a big meal around 3 times a day. I have had many chicks and …they have all grown up healthy on this! (MORE)
Well, I was told at the pet store, to give my baby hamster a water bottle filled with (what else!) water. A 4-6 oz. Bottle should be good. Hope this helps!
6 mouths is what my doctors says due to fat kids no days because they think they induced solid food to early but i disagree i think 3 mouths is OK you know that they get tried of fuolma
Well I think it depends on the parents. A maternal mom would feed the baby. But a tired mom... Dad youd better take over
A tiny sip probably won't hurt, but to be sure, or if more than a sip was ingested, call your local poison control or hospital to ask their advice.
At about 4 weeks , bunnies will start weaning and taking nibbles of their mother's hay and pellets. By 6 weeks the rabbits are usually fully-weaned. You don't have to feed them at any particular time: they should have unlimited access to hay and pellets so they can nibble on them whenever they want,… any time of day or night. At 12 weeks , you can introduce dark leafy greens into the bunny's diet. You can do this once a day, in the morning or the evening (mid-day is not good because that's when the rabbits sleep). Introduce new foods carefully because changes in the diet can make a rabbit sick. (Stick to one new food per week or two, start with a bite or two only and gradually increase the portion, and watch for signs of gas or diarrhoea.) Too many greens will make your bunny sick: daily portion for a 3-7 months old rabbit is about 1/2 Tbsp only. Between 7 and 12 months the rabbit should transition to an adult's diet. At this point you can also introduce treats (like fresh fruit), but only in tiny portions. See the related questions below for more details about how to feed pet rabbits. . (MORE)
It depends on the age and if they are new to starting on thicker milk/formula. Start gradually thickening it up. they say to start at 4 months but my son born at almost 10 lbs was only sleeping 2 hrs at a time at 3 months of age. I put a little rice cereal in his bottle and he slept sooo good. I fel…t bad right away thinking I must have been starving the poor lil guy. there was such a drastic difference. Good thing too, cause after not getting more than 2 hrs sleep at a time for weeks I was starting to go a lil bonkers!! (MORE)
Yes. Some birds carry water for chicks at the nest in their crop or regurgitate it along with food, so you should probably give your baby robin water.
it all depends if you own one i would try to have it drink out of a bottle but dont forse it if it doesnt drink try a dish where it can reach but again NEVER forse the baby bunny. if it still doesnt drink i would ask the vet.
Yes, a baby corm snake can drink regular tap water. They drink allsorts of water in the wild and it will not hurt them.
A baby should start drinking full cream milk at the age of 1 yearor more.
