My son is almost 9 months old, and he hates juice! When he was just a couple of months old, he liked it! I had to give him diluted apple juice for constipation, and he would drink it willingly. Now, for the last few months, I can't get the kid to drink more than a sip. I wouldn't really worry about it, since it's mainly empty calories, but he also won't drink much water, and he's starting to self-wean off of the formula. He also won't touch a sippy cup. What in the world am I gonna do?Answer Question

Keep offering the formula there is no need for a child to have juice at all. The newer pediatricians are recommending holding off on juice till well into toddler hood if not longer. There is a link between juice and weight problems.
Perhaps he is teething hence the perception of 'weaning' off of formula. Usually you would up his food intake during that time. Check his diapers and make sure he stays hydrated by continually offering formula. Also make sure to check his mouth for white patches that won't wipe off just in case thrush is the cause.
