When they were 100% breastfed, my wifey also didn't really bother with consciously feeding them with water ... on the rare occasions that I tried, both my boys fretted over it ... predictably becoz plain water was just what it was: PLAIN.
However, do bear in mind 2 things:
1) no matter how long you go on breastfeeding, it will have to stop some day
2) water intake will increase as your child continue to grow, grow & grow
IMHO, both yummymummy & myself are already fortunate that we didn't face too much resistance when our kiddos embarked on the transition from milk to other liquid intakes ... but for cases where there is stronger (or even absolute) resistance, then it is imperative to find a SOLUTION which your kiddo is more than willing to accept.
Pun fully intended ...
