My bub was born on the 10th. I have been giving him solids for about a month now and ive been trying to give him water as he can get a little constipated. He is still breastfed but when i try and give him water out of a sippy cup he wont take it, he just turns his head away or if he does get it he will just bite on it. I've tried pouring a little at a time in his mouth but he just chokes!
Any ideas to get water into my little man??!!

What about an open cup? Also, try cutting out constipating foods (rice, bananas, applesauce) to see if that helps. I find that adding high water foods like strawberries and melon if available and high fat foods like avocado helps with the constipation.

i still breastfeed too and my daughter is taking her water from her sippy, try the soft nippled sippys, and we found that the ones with the two handles on each side make it a lot easier i think ours is a nuk sippy
