Help! I need some suggestions! My little girl Syriah, who is almost 4 months old, DETESTS drinking water, but she gets sooo constipated! Me and hubby have tried everything, from holding off her milk for about an hour to mixing it with apple juice but she literally throws tantrums and refuses to drink it. She's smart, so I try to fool her into drinking it but within 5 seconds she's wailing and flailing all over the place, being stubborn. The only way she'll actually guzzle it down is when she's just come in from outside and she's so freakin hot she has no choice. But do I really have to bring her outside every day and literally let her sweat before she drinks it? All I want is for her to drink at least 4 ounces a day so she can stop making these little poopy balls in her diaper! If I spoil Syriah with apple juice all the time for constipation, she'll never learn to drink the water! Any suggestions? Help!!!

Babies are not suppose to drink alot of water due to that formula has a all of the vitamins that a baby needs because the baby dose not eat food and there is water in the formula already! You will not spoil her with apple juice she is only 4mo old! There are suppositories for babies I don't remember the name but it starts with a G! You can find it at Walmart ( ask the pharmacist he will know what it is)! I would not let my baby sweat from this hot weather it is not good for a 4mo old to get that hot! If she keeps having problems than call the doc she might have to switch formula or have other ideas! O and I would not hold her off the milk due to that is lack of vitamin's that she needs! I have had 4 kids and have experienced this alot! Good luck hon!
