My 3 month old son absolutely HATES water. I've tried giving it to him several ways:
(1) bottle - which he will push out with his tongue and cry if I persist
(2) bowl and spoon - which he cries, chokes a little, cough
(3) adding just a little pinch of baby formula so it has a bit of taste but he will realise it's not milk and push out the teat!
I find water a terrific kind of laxative for him and other mums have told me that I need to get him used to taking in water. Has anyone had this problem with their little ones? How did you manage to overcome this problem? HELP!
