My child just turned one. Since he was four months old I've been trying to get him to drink water and juice, anything but milk. He refuses milk in a sippy cup as well. He only likes bottles and milk. I've tried to put cucumber and lemon in water, and all different types of juices. I don't really know what else to try so I'm reaching out.

He's one now, Shawnn. ;)


Just keep offering him water in a sippy cup, straw cup, or even regular cup. Maybe let him play w/ some cups in the bathtub and he'll get the hang of it when he's ready.

HE DOESN'T NEED anything but milk! He most definitely did not need juice at 4 months.

Try letting him have his milk. That's where he gets his nutrients and hydration from.

He's one, he doesn't need juice, and probably doesn't really need water at this point. There's plenty of water in his milk. As long as he is hydrated, I'm not seeing the issue.
