I have a sick baby. She has a stomach virus, and her pediatrician wants her to drink Pedialyte. However, sick or not, she is not big on drinking anything. She prefers to get fluids from nursing. When not sick, she will drink maybe a couple of ounces of water per day; if it's hot, she'll drink maybe eight ounces of water. She has taken a couple of sips of Pedialyte, but that's it.
I am not too concerned for purposes of this illness, because breastmilk is the very best thing for her and because I think she's getting plenty of it and is starting to eat more solids again, slowly but surely. But... how will she ever self-wean if she rarely drinks anything other than my milk, and that straight from the source? I know things may change a lot in the coming months... Has anyone else been there? How did your LO start drinking other things?
