My son is now 20 months old. He has been breastfed from birth til 18 months. He rejected the bottle early. Now after I weaned him from breastfeeding, he liked his baby formula at first (ie. formula for 9 -24mos). For the past few weeks, he wouldn't drink much and would resist drinking his formula. He would rather prefer water. I also tried changing formula brands but he still refuses. It always comes to a struggle between us when it comes to making him drink. He doesn't want fruit juices, yogurt juice (but he eats yogurt), smart sips, etc. He is just contented with drinking water. His only formula intake is that mixed with his cereal in the morning. He is a very active and healthy boy, but I am concerned about his fluid intake. Is this okay?
