I am starting my 6 month old (4 & a half corrected) on some solids and want to give him water in addition to his formula so he doesnt get constipated, but he just wont drink it. Any suggestions?

i give my son water at night when he wakes for a bottle....he is 13 months though... with all the veggies in the baby food ...he should not get constipated... apple juice or prune juice work well.... also his formula or breast milk have the right amount of water needed...

Try mixing in a small amount of fruit juice to give it a sweet taste and then slowly reduce the amount of juice you are adding. That's how I got my son to drink water.

Try watering down his juice. He will get the extra water and still get something that tastes good.
