What else can she drink?

I've been baby-sitting this girl the past 2 days. Her mom said she can't have juice b/c it breaks out her bottom. She won't drink water. Her mom said she can have tea or soda or kool-aid but I don't let my 2 drink that so I'm not going to give it to her in front of them. The only thing left is milk, which she does like, but eventually she's going to get tired of milk, plus it's too expensive to let her drink 5 or 6 glasses a day. I give her 1 glass of chocolate milk and 1 glass of strawberry milk. What else is there?

  • Why do parents give soda to their toddlers? This is just bizarre to me. I would just keep offering water, if she's thirsty, she'll drink it.

  • If she doesn't drink plain water, maybe add crystal light?

  • Tell the mom you don't let your kids drink that other stuff and ask her to bring at least a quart of milk every week.

  • Tell her mom to bring her things to drink you're running out of options, but soda for an 18 month old isn't good, or kool aid, really.

  • Offer nothing but water. She'll eventually drink it and it's the best thing for her.
