  • i'm not sure and was wondering that myself actually. on average DD has about 3 sippy's of milk a day, and there's always a sippy of water available for her.

  • My doctor said about 24 oz a day but my 1 year old is a big boy with a big appetite so it may be less for smaller kids.

  • I think between 16-24 oz. Best to call the pedi and ask.

  • its 16-24 oz a day but if my kids have drank the 16-24 oz and still want more i'm not going to tell them they cant and since my daughter is allergic to milk and cant have juice the only thing she can/will drink is her milk
