    Jennifer, just wanted to add that as you offer fresh vegetables and
    fruits, the baby will be taking in water from those foods as well.
    When we weaned a Greenwing for a friend, I used to also soak weaning
    pellets in addition to the foods we offered. I can honestly say, it
    wasn't very often that I saw that baby actually drinking water
    before it left us at 16wks (not fully weaned)
