My son is off all his bottles.. strictly on a sippy cup..(which he does know how to use) but hardly drinks anything out of it... Most days he consumes MAYBE 3 oz of fluids a day.... and thats mostly water or juice.. doesnt like whole milk in it... Im not to concerned on the lack of milk issue as I know i can get calcium in him other ways.. just the lack of fluids all together.. he has maybe 4 wet diapers a day and gets constipated easily... any advice? Everyone says he will drink if hes thirsty.. but i dunno... it stresses me out!!!!!
