Diluting water with juice?


My son will not take water, we've been trying for quite a while now and different types of sippy cups. There is one cup that he finally likes but he just will not drink the water. He turns away from it. We've warmed it up, tried it cold etc. And nothing worked.

My mom suggested putting a small amount of juice in it (orange juice or any other kind). I tried it this morning and warmed up the mixture - to my surprise, he took it!!!

Is this okay? I don't want it to hurt his tummy but I know he really needs the water with the amount of solids he's eating. He still nurses 8 times a day though.

Our sippy cup holds 6oz of water. I put 0.5oz of orange juice and filled the rest with water.

Let me know your thoughts!💕
