Herbal teas are great and don’t typically irritate a baby’s stomach. They can be made in batches and served hot or chilled with ice and there are many different flavors to choose from so you won’t get bored (at least not right away).

If you enjoy caffeinated beverages, limit your intake to about two (eight-ounce) servings per day.

Cranberry, pomegranate and acai berry drinks are another option. Try mixing them with either sparkling or plain water. Adding slices of lemon, limes, or oranges to plain will add flavor and won’t irritate a baby’s sensitive stomach.
