How can I get my 12mos old (8months adjusted) to drink water?

Karo syrup doesn't work.. warmed or cool did not make the cut either. What do I do she has eczema and I think it will help clear her if she drinks water.

  • Keep offering it, plain, in a sippy, and when she's ready, she will take it.

  • You can keep offering it, but water doesn't have anything to do with eczema.

  • Get eucerin lotion for the excema. Take her to the store and let her pick out a sippy; a Sigg or other stainless steel is best. Or be brave and give her an inch of water in a regular cup; if nothing else, she will have fun.
