Q.

Baby do not want to drink water.

My 9 month old do not want drink water at all. She is only drinking the 6-12months Lactogen formula, but totally refuses to drink water.

How can i get her to drink water since she is formula fed, and must drink water, cause it is important for her kidneys. Can you please advise. Her urine has also got a bad smell, and is yellowish, it is not clear.

Your baby does not have to drink water as long as she is taking her formula well. You could try her on Rooibos and see if she will take this as an additional fluid.
