Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified, what kind of stale water do you mean? Has it changed in color, aroma, taste, or consistency? How much water does your baby consume? Are there any complaints that your baby experiences after consuming them?
Water that is suitable for consumption is tasteless, colorless, odorless, and does not contain harmful microorganisms that can cause disease. Inappropriate water consumption, especially in infants, is at risk of causing health problems, including nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloody bowel movements, mucus bowel movements, and so on. It is also possible that if the water contains disease-causing microorganisms, for example viruses or bacteria, the baby will experience a fever and various other discomfort in his body.
You can observe, is there above the danger signs above that your baby is experiencing? If not, then you can actually be a little more relieved. Chances are, your child is protected from health problems due to consuming the water. Indeed, a child's resistance to digestive disorders can vary depending on age, type of food and drink consumed, lifestyle, and general health conditions. Most importantly, you need to be more vigilant and careful, lest you repeat an incident like that at a later date. Not necessarily, if the recurrence of your baby can be free from the disease as it is today. This is because people's immune systems, especially babies and children, often fluctuate, sometimes go up, sometimes go down. Before giving water to babies, make sure you cook it until it's fully cooked, then store it in a good storage medium. The use of bottled mineral water is probably better if you are in doubt about the quality of water obtained from the soil. Do not forget, also make sure you give your child a drink in a good container, so that it does not change the quality of the water. Get used to it, drain the water after drinking it, then wash the glass, don't use it repeatedly, let alone leave the water open for a long time.
However, if any of the above danger signs your baby is experiencing, and these signs last up to 3 days or more, you should check your baby directly to a doctor or pediatrician. That way, the doctor can give your baby the best management according to the health problems he is experiencing.
Hope it helps ..
