    I have just had a cup with water that I hand him occasionally and he, now, knows what it is and drinks at will. I always nurse before I give solids too. Afterwards we usually play

    Hope that helps

    my lo loves to drink....but i have read in quite a few places that there is no Need for water before a year....but.....8 oz? per day is fine to have too i usually offer it at the end of a meal, because ds will lose interest in anything but drinking as soon as he Sees the cup!

    We have always offer DJ water with his meals. Out of one kind of sippy or another. he didn't start really showing interest until he learned to drink out of a straw which happened right around 10months. But we have alway offered.
