My daughter who is a week shy of a year refuses to drink .

My daughter is refusing to drink at all. This has been slowly getting worse for two months now . It started with her just not drinking as much as she once did . Our doctor told us that was fine as long as she has at least 18oz a day . Now she's not drinking at all . We have tried different bottles, cups, different types of juices , formulas , pedialyte, pediasure .Nothing has worked , She just keep spitting it all out . Our doctor doesn't seem to think its a problem but in the last month she has only gain 5oz . I'm scared she going to get really sick . What should I do ? Has anyone else had this problem ?

Have you tried popsicles?? Does she eat fine? How many wet diapers does she have a day? I think i'd see a different doctor!

Will she eat water rich foods? Such as

bell peppers

Will she not drink anything? What about 1 part juice to 3 parts water?

I agree with PP I would talk with a different doctor.
