    Hey Guys,

    My little girl is 2.5 yrs old and she can drink gallons of water/squash a day if i would let her, she has had water infections when she was 9months to 18months old and was in hospital for them as they were so bad as she never got upset or saying she was sore untill she became stiff and blue in face i realised what was up... and since all this she drinks loads.

    Does your child drink loads if you let them?? xx

    If I give Dylan juice, he'll down cup after cup. He has been known to down 2 large cups, one after the other. If I give him water he'll drink hardly anything.

    So I alternate them, which seems to work quite well!

    she drinks loads but i do limit the squash. Shes only allowed it at meal times or as a one off when out. she goes through loads of water though. I just figured it was to do with the huge amount of energy she burns. Shes on the go from the moment she gets up. its thirsty work being 2!

    Jacob drinks a large cup full of milk before he's even got downstairs in the morning and he comes up and hands it to me and says more juice pease.

    I try and alternate between milk(cows)/water and juice though!

    He drinks more than me!! I put it down to his dad (he's the same). I'm not worried hun!

    I give milk in the morning, she is allowed to have only 2 cups a day (any more than that and it will diminish the nutritional value of it, or something, according to her pediatrician). Then if she is really thirsty, she is allowed to have water until after lunch, then it's ONE cup of juice. Afterwards, water for the rest of the night. :) I give juice as a treat now, if I give it to her as part of a meal, she'll get full and not eat, as well as drink 4 cups in a row.

    Phew. Glad its not just mine. Madi drinks sooooooo much juice. She hasnt had milk since she was 11 months old, and she wont drink water, so she has juice all day long! I HAVE to buy sugar free though cause i think she would be buzzing off the roof at bed time otherwise.
