my dd2 is 6.5 months and since weaning she has really lost interest in her milk. she now only has two 6oz bottles at a push even that is forced. is her age too young for her to be drinking beakers of water? ive heard alot obout water intoxication.

My son went off milk when he weaned, I made a massive effort to ensure he had enough calcium.
No idea about water intoxication I would assume vitamins/minerals/iron/calcium will be a more pressing issue. I found my hv was really helpful for suggesting foods.

I would think two bottles would be ok if they are getting cheese, yoghurt etc. You can make up porridge or weetabix with about 6oz of formula if you heat it enough
