    Not sure if this is common but our LO refuses cooled boiled water or juice, he takes it initially but then refuses to take any more when he realises it is not his milk. We have tried cooled boiled water, flavoured water and juice and he is the same with all, any one got any advice?

    How old is baby?

    You might want to try adding a bit of formula/breast milk into the cup of water to give it the smell/slight taste.

    It is not much help but my LO was like this and then at 7 months suddenly started drinking loads of water. She much preferred her doidy cup to anything else too- might be worth a go?

    i'm beginning to think its pretty normal, we all seem to be having this problem!

    in saying that when it was really hot on friday i managed to get her to take an ounce out a bottle!

    she opens her mouth for her sooky cup but then pushes it away.
