If it helps my LO is currently ill with tonsilitis and a stomach bug and at the hospital they told me not to worry about his solids but keep his fluids up and as he is being fussy with his milk I can try and make smoothies or milkshakes with it I have to go to the shops tomorrow to get the fresh ingredients but I did give him a teaspoon of banana Nesquik with his usual milk today and he loved it and drank more milk than he has in days. It's not ideal due to the sugar but it was just for today, it will be fresh shake tomorrow.
If your worried about LO getting enough fluids they told me to press gently on his skin and if the mark returns to the normal skin colour within a few seconds then there is enough fluids getting through
My DS used to also refuse to drink water either from a sippy cup or a bottle. In the end I tried giving him a few spoons of water before his meals. I think he initially found it a novelty, then gradually wanted more and more. After buying countless sippy cups, which he rejected, I finally tried him with a Nuby brand cup. They have very soft spouts, and he took to it right away. He now drinks about 1.5 to 2 large cups of water a day.
