Post subject: Water
My sisters baby is 2 weeks old, and my mom mentioned that he was doing little balls of mustard coloured poo. I said the colour sounds normal but it should be more like paste (formula fed) so said maybe he needs some cooled boiled water, especially in this heat.
My sister asked the MW and she said no, only milk until 6 months. Im sure when i had the birth to 5 book it said that b/f babies dont need water, but formula fed may do.

I would think the same of you, if their poo is looking a bit hard some water might help. Is it her first baby? has she got the formula to water ratio right? Sure she has but might be worth double checking.
