Not Drinking Enough? Sippy Cup Help
We weaned holly off of bottles and formula last week and she has been doing great, until she got a fever for 3 days this week and the first day she wouldn't drink any liquid at all unless it was out of a bottle. The next few days she was okay and went back to the sippy cup, but just isn't drinking very much. I feel like it's not nearly as much as she should be. The doc said as long as theres a wet diaper every 6 or so hours she is hydrated...which she is having but they aren't very full. She is drinking...just not much. Is this just getting used to having a sippy full time? How can I get her to drink more? Am I overreacting?
The diaper amount changes for SURE!!!! The amount of fluid they take in totally changes, but as long as her diaper, isn't dry... Hang in there... don't second guess... You're doing great and so is she.. :)
Avery was really sick a few weeks ago and wasn't interested in her cup at all. When she finally felt better it was a struggle to get her back on. I just kept offering her the cup as often as possible. She would just take little sips at a time but pretty soon she was used to it again. Now we're pretty much back to normal.
I wouldn't go back to bottles. She'll get back to the cup faster if it's her only option.
