    My LO has always refused water however now we are weaning him, I need him to take some. He had a couple of days where he took it, then he stopped so we tried baby juice. That lasted two days and now he refuses both. I am worried as he is getting constipated and finding it hard to poo.

    Any advice?
    Thanks

    I have this problem with my lo too, posted a thread about it a few days ago.

    I've got to the point I'm syringing it into his mouth but I feel evil :cry:

    He's really struggling to poo to, he screams in pain, not nice Afraid I ahve no suggestions but will keep an eye on this thread.

    Your not supposed to water down feeds as LO will not get the right nutrients out of the milk.

    Hi. I'm having the same problem so I boil pears and mash them with lots of water left so its a watery puree and recently I add prunes to help him go!

    It worked yesterday but he still seems to be struggling today so might cut out the potato and porridge as that may be causing it.
