Won't drink any liquid other than milk

Hi All

DH has started eating puree foods and loves them. However, I can't get him to drink any water or liquid other than milk. I've tried in a sippy cup and a bottle with handles but he cries and refuses it every time.

I've tried warm water, cold water, water from steaming the pears, orange juice to 5 parts water but he pulls a face at all of it.He's eating a lot at lunchtime now and I really don't want to top him up further with milk for ever but he's already been constipated once and I don't want it to happen again.

Any ideas? There seems to be lots of advice on food but not on drinking. DH was bottle fed if that makes a difference. I haven't tried juice in his normal bottle but he refused water in it.

Could I put 1 scoop of formular in for 90ml water perhaps? All advice would be much appreciated!

Thank you

RE: Won't drink any liquid other than milk

Hey there

Well Eric is nearly 1 and still doesn't eat, so am not exactly an expert here, but have been diluting his formula milk down loads in order to get him hungry, so know its ok to do. he doesnt take anything but milk either, so this was advised by his dietician! Maybe you could gradually water it down until little one takes it ok??

Hi!

Have you seen the bottles of baby juice? In the baby section of most supermarkets.

I know lots of people who've bought a bottle and used it to 'wean' their babies onto drinking water.

The bottles contain diluted juice but try half juice and half water, then next time add a little less juice and a bit more water etc etc.

Hope your DS gets a taste for liquid other than milk soon!

Thanks for you advice Jodie.

He is now taking water but only from his bottle at the moment. I'll keep trying him on cups and beakers once I get him established. He's still pulling a face but at least he's drinking it!

Hi Sushe

Mine is also not drinking anything other than milk. I haven't tried juice yet, they only started eating at 6 months but they don't like water even if I put a little brown suger in and also no rooibos tea for them.

Maybe you must just keep on trying, I think it is all new to him and need to get use to the taste!
