Post subject: lo wont drink anything but milk :(
i have tried everything with him from juice to plain water but since he was born he has never been intrested in drinking anything but his milk......anyone gt any ideas i could try to get him to as his urine is very smelly and he is really struggling to poo, which is even worse since he has been on 3 solid meals a day. xx

yeah i always warm it bt no luck i have brought him a beaker so i mite try that out, thankyou
i think they associate bottle with milk, so get frustrated when milk doesnt come out. when i switched sam from bottle to beaker for milk, i had to get a different type of beaker, as she wouldnt drink it from her water beaker

I found with Alex he wanted to copy what I was doing. So I put some water in a normal mug and drank from it making really slurpy noises and pretend laughing, then put the cup to his mouth and after only 3 or 4 attempts of this he drank some. He now takes some water at most meal times and sometimes even in between. Some days he'll have loads other days hardly any.
