    Default 11 month old not drinking water

    Hi, my DD wont drink water from any sippy cups, and barely takes it from my water bottle or cup. Does anyone have any suggestions? if possibly, excluding juices or sugar.

    She's still on bottled formula also.

    Cheers Tanya

    I always used a sports sipper bottle - had more of a straw than a spout and just made sure I put it on his tray with every meal - as you cut down on bottles you will probably see him drink more water so don't stress too much yet ! ( and yes definitely don't offer anything other than water for the first few years - DS had a fresh veggie juice occasionally from when he was about 2.5 and now gets sparkling water when we are at restaurants/cafes)

    Thanks very much Elijahs Mums
    I've got a couple of water bottles with a similar design, so I'll see how she goes with them.
