OK, so I'm a little confused about serving water and preventing dehydration. Let's say your LO is not longer on formula, how much water should LO be drinking? Elle still drinks formula - 4 bottles a day, but sometimes she'll take three (morning, afternoon and night). Do I just offer her water all the time? What if she drinks too much? I don't want her to have water posioning.
well, she could really only get water poisoning if she is ingesting too much too fast, so I would only offer her a few oz. at a time every few hours. That is what I do with Hudson, and he is fine with that. He hasn't really liked water all that much, so I just fill his sipper cup with 6-8 oz. and offer it every so often, and he drinks what he wants, and I offer it again later.
Elle would have to consume a very large amount of water to get poisoning, so I don't think that would be likely.
she should be completely fine with that. Don't worry. She'd have to have ALOT of water to get poisoned. It's something like 3L in a short period of time to give an adult poisoning, and that's a hell of a lot of water!
