Hello, I have got a question...is it possible that baby could be thirsty??

My son is 2 weeks old and he eats normally well, but few minutes after feeding he is looking for more.. when I offer him, he spits it out.. so I was thinking if he could be thirsty when it’s that hot outside..we are on combined feeding.

If so, what can we do? Can we give him a water? Evian for example?

No a 2 week old doesn't need water. Maybe he just wants to suck. Does he have a dummy?

In hot weather breastmilk is the perfect drink for LO, so I'd just offer that whenever possible (which will help with your supply anyway).

In hot weather babies often want to feed little and often. If you think you're being used as a dummy then use the actual dummy rather than your boob. Your baby will soon let you know if its not what she wants....

Just to add to above when a baby can have water it should be cool boiled and not bottled like Evian.

Best of luck, I feel like a human dummy some days x

Formula is made with water. Breast milk is 80% water. Whichever way you feed your baby is not thirsty.
