Re: Getting my toddler to drink...

what about some watery fruits like watermelon or canteloupe? Or you can do water with some fruit in it, she might like that, because it makes the water sweeter.

But whatever I have with me, he has to have some. So he drinks a ton of water right now! Maybe something like that would work for you? I have a straw water bottle, and they always want to have some water from it... much more interesting than a sippy or regular cup.
You know what? I hadn't thought of that. She'll drink water if it's from a "grown up" cup. Thanks, momma!!!
