Your baby's throat is not dry you just feel that way. He is getting enough water.from breast milk as 80%of breast milk is water and should be on exclusive breastfeeding till 6 months.

Please stop the hot water process, your baby is fine. Also note that exclusive breast fed babies do not necessarily poo every day and can stay up to 2 weeks without passing stools as long as the stools come out normal when they finally come.
