Gillian will be 9mos old tomorrow and I'm supposed to be giving her water with snacks and after meals. Plus also supposed to be pushing the sippy cup which she keeps pushing away. Can get her to drink a lil bit of water out of a bottle or even out of glass I'm drinking from but most times she won't touch water unless I mix it with some pear or apple juice. She loves the pear juice! Any advice on how to trick them into drinking more water would be greatly appreciated. At the WIC class they said she should be drinking at least 16 oz of water a day and I doubt she even drinks 4oz a day!
