My son doesn't like water. He'll drink a little from my cups here and there, but out of his own cups, that's a no-go. I've even tried just giving him water and nothing else, thinking if he got thirsty enough, he'd drink it. Nope. After 2 days, about 8 sips of water and about 3 barely wet diapers, I caved and gave him his diluted Gatorade. lol, I water down ALL of his juice. He mostly drinks Gatorade and water. A couple times a month, I give him about 2 oz of apple juice, super diluted, but that gives him the runs. I really wanna break him of this no-water stuff because that's mostly all we drink around here and I know juices aren't great for him all the time. Help me, please!!
He's only 22 mos. can I give that to him? The fake sweeteners make me nervous. I don't even drink them. Lol
I've even tried lessening the Gatorade and putting more water, but he knows and won't drink it when it gets below a couple oz.
Not really the best option but you can get those packets like crystal light and put just enough in to flavor the water. We can make one of those packets last up to 3 to 5 glasses of water.
This, I also make them herbal tea's and sweeten with raw honey. But my son is an Ovaltine freak, he will drink regular milk, but prefers chocolate milk. For milks, I offer cows, hemp (when we can afford it) and coconut.
My kids get water, milk or organic juice. In the summer time I make homemade lemonade and iced tea. Other than that they really don't get anything else.
