Sugar Water for Infants! Is it Safe?

Some infants are fed sugar water for different reasons. Some give it to soothe their crying babies while some parents feel it will cure their infant's constipation.

In certain parts of India, sugar water is given to babies as their first food, immediately after birth. According to the Ministry of Health, no food substitute is as nutritious as Mother's milk to the baby.
