water at 6 1/2 months old

is it okay for me to give my son water at 6 1/2 months old to sip on. I am trying to see if he will use a sippy cup. He is trying to figure it out so he doesn't get much if he is lucky haha but I usually give it to him when I am feeding him baby food.

    My doctor told us to introduce the sippy cup and let her have a little water every now and then.

      We started at six months too, and like you're describing, my daughter didn't really get the hang of it until later. She's a pro now, lol.
