constipation and refusing fluids!
My LO is almost 8 mos and loving solids, but still has not been able to figure out how to drink from and not play with his sippy cup. he has never had regular bottles and therefore wouldnt take them, which is fine with me except im not sure how to get him to take in enough fluids. we are trying to mostly practice BLW and DS is eating with us at meal times and now nursing for his 2-3 naps per day and before bed/at night so it feels as if he should be getting enough, but he is constipated and often passes pebble like poops. i keep offering a sippy with water and sometimes he chews on it, but never sips. how can i keep him hydrated and continue to introduce more solids?
