When given to babies, barley water helps with the digestion of milk, preventing the development of curds within the stomach. Many baby cereals are made with barley.

no, don't experiment early because your baby is still don't have stable immune system, this may lead to infection of imbalance

I would personally recommend that you use regular water for your baby's formula. You can mix barley with the formula to make a meal. Barley is sold by Gerber and that is a reccomended name brand that is sold in most all stores. Mixing the formula with barley water may take away the nutrients.

I think its safe if used as therapeutic nutrition (limited time) for babies with certain problems e.g fever,diarrhea,constipation,cough to support the liver especially if the baby receive antipyretics(most of them are hepatotoxic) and enhance the immune system, and this mix is working very effectively

No. Do not mix anything with your formula. Especially if your child is under a year old. Mixing things in the bottle could cause choking. Or your baby may be allergic to barley. Breast milk, or formula ONLY for at least 6 months. After 6 months introduce barley cereal if the baby is ready.

I don't know what barley water is, but I wouldn't think of giving him anything at that young age without talking to the baby doctor first. I would not listen to anyone else but him.

Some people don't understand what barley water is. It is only the water in which barley has been cooked, 1 TBSP barley and 2 cups water, boiled then cooked til barley is soft. Water is strained- no grains in it. It is actually a popular drink in many countries.
