10 month old won''t drink water
Hello,
How do i get my 10 month old daughter to drink water. She has 3 bottles of formula a day of 200ml each and refuses to drink anything else throughout the day. I have tried rooibos, juice and water out of a cup, 4 different sippy cups. Is it ok for her not to drink or should i keep trying?

I agree that your baby is not drinking enough.She is probably only drinking about half the amount of fluid she needs per day.Keep on trying to get her to drink more.
