My 10.5 month old is solely breastfed and has been since birth. He enjoys almost any food I have given him but has horrible constipation (prunes and high fiber foods don't help). He used to take a bottle when I would pump but now refuses it. My pediatrician said that he needs more liquids in his diet. I have tried giving him juice mixed with water in sippy cups but he won't drink from them. I've tried straws and letting him drink from a normal cup which he'll usually only do once or twice. If I can get several ounces in him, he is able to go but otherwise, it is usually around a week between. Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated as I hate to see him in pain. Thank you.
