My son will not drink water.

I was told by my doctor that it is actually better to give water instead of juice. And that it is even better if you don't give them any juice till they are older. I was told that children under 2 should only drink milk and water.
Tina, maybe try only feeding him his milk out of a cup. Then he will associate the cup with drinking. Then once he starts taking the cup better try giving him water in it.

I don't really want to give him juice. The thing is......... he won't even let me put the cup to his mouth to drink it. It's like he knows its something other than milk!!
Lauren, I also have a 2 & a half year old and I started to give him cooled boiled water almost from birth and he now only drinks water & smoothies. He is a happy healthy little boy. I have no idea who told you water is toxic but I think you should ask a professional somebody in your area as all people need some form of fluid to drink other than whats in our food. :o)
