I don't know about you, but I feel like I have to literally do dog and pony tricks to get my daughter to eat and drink. As I mentioned before, I have a few tricks up my sleeves when it comes to getting those fluids down.
Yes, that is a shot glass. And no I don't refer to it as that to my daughter. We lovingly call it a "Baby Cup".
But she sure thinks it's fun to drink out of. For some unknown reason it's less daunting for her to drink a half a cup of milk out of a shot glass rather than a regular glass. So when she's having a tough time I pull out the big guns. "Shot Guns" that is...
(roughly 3 almost-full shot glasses = 1/2 a cup).
Another favorite (especially when she's sick) are medicine syringes. Yep. One dose of dairy at a time. This method takes a little longer and little more patience, but it works.
