Help with drinking

Hi! I have a 14 month old girl who is on a g-tube but has begun the eat pretty much anything I can put on a toddler fork and she can feed herself. I have unsuccessfully tried to get her to drink to no avail. I am getting pretty frustrated and feeling defeated. Has anyone else had this problem and can offer tips? I have tried various bottles and sippy cups. She does love her paci, though. Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

Weaning advice please!

Posted by VeLynn Tapia on April 28, 2015 at 8:44am 7 Comments
