I'm weaning my 6 month old and he's breast fed and just will not take a bottle. How can I get water in to him?? He's really constipated sad

Have you tried a cup? My dd would not drink water from a bottle even though she is formula fed. It took a while but she took it eventually.

A beaker? Pear/ apple purée has fluid in it, that helps. Not sure you could get a 6 month old to eat satsuma segments (bad memory) but if so they are good.

A cup or a beaker with a straw? Or feed more and cut down on solids. At that age I used to stop solids for a day or two to clear DS out!
