My son wouldn't take to water in his sippy cup. Then by chance I had a drink of water myself and my son reached out for the glass. I offered him a drink and to my suprise he loved drinking straight from the glass. Sometimes there are easy solutions you just have work out which one is right for your child.

My twins did not take to water right away either. My twins pedi suggested pedialyte rather than water during the hot summer months here in Texas. After introducing the pedialyte I have had success with water. They are now accustomed to the taste of something other than formula. HTH! Lauren
