So my little one has been a fan of milk since day 1, she absolutely loves it. I have tried to get her to drink juice from every cup there is but i have had no luck. I can only sometimes get her to drink water from plastic cup and that's about it. She will just sip and push it away. Any advice?

Kids never need juice so don't worry about that. It's mostly sugar and really doesn't provide a lot of nutritional value. You're better off giving her fresh fruit, although you don't say how old she is. Milk is great...it's hydrating, nutritional...all around good. Keep trying with the water....she'll eventually drink it.

I agree with Jane. Juice is not necessary and has a lot of unneeded sugar. Don't worry. Milk has all the hydrating properties that milk does..but water has no calories.

My daughter had very little interest in anything other than milk until she around 18mos-2yrs old.

Just keep offering it to her like when she wakes up from naps and at mealtimes and have a cup with a lid sitting around where she plays in case she gets thirsty and has a sip.

I wouldn't worry about juice but I have had to make water fun for my kids and my older one will drink it now with no problem but with my younger one it is hit or miss. I started cutting up little pieces of fruit and freezing them in icecube trays and putting them in their cups.
