Hi, i had the same problem with my daughter. Theres several things u can try. Make a game of it like airoplanes flying into his mouth, fill water up with a pop top and help him put it in his mouth. Another thing is that sometimes there to full on food that they dont want water. DO YOU GIVE HIM A DRINK WITH HIS FOOD?. with my 3rd step child it was a faze when she was sick. If theese dont help just let me know and ill try help more,
