Re: 15 month old won't drink
It took my lo forever to be good at drinking and she still isn't great at it at 28 mths! I second the straw recommendation, that was the only thing that worked for us. She loves the Take n toss brand since there is no valve. It is a bit messier but she hated all valves. Even now, I have to really work to get 16 oz of milk into her a day (she weaned about a month ago). I have found that she likes to drink in the car, I guess thats a bad habit but at least she gets some. Now that she is weaned, she will drink with my dh at bedtime and that is all she gets for the day. I offer all the time but she mostly won't take it. She wats lots of fruit so I guess that is where she gets teh fluid. We were also slow on solids but no real aversions here. Maybe try some avocado and o shaped cereal, they are often very popular. If he likes fruit, try some pieces of soft fruit to start with. He probably should move on from purees but I have to confess, my 28 mth old eats 1 jar everyday still. She LOVES baby sweet potatoes. I tried giving her chunks but she said they weren't the right thing. She eats plenty of other stuff so I just do it. HTH!
