My son is 2 years and 1 month, For some days now he has refused to take water regularly. This has resulted in his excrete to be hard.
Although,he is not having any health issues. But he will excrete once I gave him castor oil. But the issue of not drinking water is giving me worries. What do I do?
To prevent hard stools, endeavor to give lots of fruits like fresh orange juice, watermelon e.t.c as well as vegetables and food rich in fibre.
It is possible for a child not to like drinking water but you should still bother and try to give the child water to drink as they need it. You should try and give him sips of water after each complementary feed and he does not need to drink a whole bottle of water at a go. Frequents sips through the day will do. You can also give other drinks like milk, fresh fruit juice to supplement his water intake.
