I have tried various baby juices, water and fennel tea without success. I've given it to him in a beaker and in a bottle. He's just not interested. He's 23 weeks and is weaning. He is rather constipated IMO, and I think he needs to be drinking some kind of fluid. What do you reckon?

I use fresh orange juice and a dilute with boiled cooled water. Wasn't keen to begin with but they soon get the idea.

Ive been trying to get him to drink various things for probably about a month now with little or no success.

If he is being weaned, you could make his food even sloppier to keep his fluids up if he is a little dehydrated?

If you keep giving stuf to kids- juice, beqkers, vegetables, rent books- they eventually get the idea. It takes a while sometimes though.
