Q:

hello, my baby is 7months, she is on top feed, and in weaning process, how to encourage her to drink water? because sometimes her stool is very solid.



Prithvi Balaji

how are you giving her top feeds? if it is through bottle then in between feeds please give her water through bottle and in between feeds also give her water in spoon.

Sonali Shivlani

Offer her water in between feeds and even after a feed. Most babies do not really like the taste of water and hence reject it. As you have mentioned baby is seven months old I would assume that you are now giving solids as well. Please go slow and give fruits like pear and papaya as these are stool softeners. Avoid banana and apple for a few days till the motions settle.
