I had lots of trouble getting Mitch to drink water, i used to drop it into his mouth when he was alittle baby with the dropper you get with panadol, as he got older he didn't like that, i use to give him a washer to play with and he sucked the water out of it, ifyou want to sterilise it put it in boiling water and give it to bubs when it is cooled down, good in summer too as it helps cool them down too!
when he started to move around(crawl and walk) i use to put a sipper attachment on the Avent bottle andsitit in where he was playing and he would pick it up himself and have a go cos i wasn't forcing him to do it!
Now he drinks out of a sipper that you just buy at Woolies!
It can be a long process and i use to stress that he wasn't getting enough, but any is better than nothingand if your son isbeing breastfed, he is getting a lot out of the milk, so don't stress if he only has a tiny bit, somtimes Mitch would only have 10mls everycouple of days, but better than none!
Hang in, he will come round eventualy!
And asmentioned int he other reply(sorry can't remember who it was), try the baby juice, i tried that as well, but he didn't like it(still doesn't like juice)!
Keep trying, it weill happen soon,
