Have you given your baby anything to drink yet besides formula or breastmilk? if yes, what have you tried.

All Jacob has had is breastmilk. I think with Jackson we started giving him diluted apple juice with his snacks when he turned 1. I'm not a big fan of juices and would rather they drink milk. Jackson thankfully loves milk and still would prefer to have milk over juice. Although his nana has kept him the past few days and she gave him some chocolate milk which I don't do because I'm afraid that he will start wanting the chocolate milk over the regular milk which is exactly what happened last night. He wanted chocolate milk and cried when I gave him regular milk. I tried to explain that he only gets chocolate milk on special occasions and when he's with his nana..lol.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Kira had a bit of Pedialyte when she had the stomach bug, but other than that, just breastmilk.

JR has had water with his meals (just to wash everything down) and coconut water because he's having some nasty diarrhea with teething. I don't really do juice for the kids. Allison will have it every once in a while then the container gets tossed out when I need more room in the fridge She prefers milk and water, she thinks chocolate or strawberry milk is a super special treat!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

Sofia has had watered down apple juice a couple times....when she has mucus related coughs...it just seems to soothe her cough a little better than the formula.

*Thank you AlexKatieAidenMommy for my awesome siggie*

Some water and a couple oz of diluted prune juice. I give my kids juice over milk. They get about 4-6oz a day of juice and the rest is water. They only place they drink cows milk is school.

I gave him a sippy with water in it just to play with it. But I dont think a single drop went down his throat. Hes only had BM. Although I have given him sips of sweet tea. Were Texan. Sweet Tea runs like water here.

Thanks Kiliki for the siggie!
