  • That sounds like a lot. My daughter mainly drinks milk she has about 3 8 oz cups of Whole milk every day and very little juice water mixes about 2 cups per day. She just really likes her food!! lol
    In the summer I am sure she will drink more it is usually about 110 here!!!

  • Not normal for here!

    Shoot...adults are only supposed to have at least 64oz a day!!!

    My sons get roughly 24oz of milk a day and maybe another 20oz of water/juice or water. More if they ask, but no where NEAR 100oz!!!

    How does she eat after all that liquid?

  • Definitely ask the pediatrician b/c excessive thirst can be a symptom. My dd is 19 months and drinks maybe 30-35 oz all day.

  • My daughter used to drink at least a gallon of water a day ontop of whatever else she could get her hands on...We did live in Las Vegas so that could have been part of it. She still drinks a lot of water but not as much. I also agree with the anonymous person who said to contact the pediatrician. Drinking lots of water can be a symptom of Diabeates....but don't dwell on that until you know all the facts....

  • Talk to your doctor ASAP. This is not normal. Even if she doesn't have a health problem that is causing excess thirst, drinking that much water can cause problems.

  • too much!! talk to her dr, your body can drown by drinking too much, not making it up look it up, thats too much for an adult let alone a child, plus is she having any other symptoms, urinating a lot? sleep habbits, dry lips, weight loss?? talk to the dr
