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.

UTI is not an infection you treat by self-medication or over-the-counter drug. Children with a UTI can be appropriately managed by their pediatrician.
UTIs are treated with antibiotics. The way your child receives the antibiotic depends on the severity and type of infection. If your child has a fever or is vomiting and unable to keep fluids down, the antibiotics may be put directly into the bloodstream through the intravenous vein (IV) or muscle (IM) using a needle. This is usually done in the hospital. Otherwise, the antibiotics can be given by mouth, as liquid or pills.
