Whoops, sorry, I miscommunicated.  My point was that they tolerate summer
water, not that they require it all summer.  Your baby bulbs are probably
fine.  They'll just start growing later and (if they are blooming size)
bloom for a shorter time.  I have a friend who never watered his until late
October.  They grew fine but rarely bloomed.

I keep most of mine dry from the time they go dormant until the start of
August.  Then I start watering them.  That gets them blooming in
