With the warm months upon us, and no AC, there is concern that perhaps the children are not getting enough water. Of course water, juice, milk, etc is always available to them, but they don't seem to "drink" a lot. I know the standard answer is 8-8 oz of water per day. However is that different for children? There is such a thing as water intoxication where people die from drinking TO MUCH water!
Water like everything else is about MODERATION! Of course I could just call the pedi and ask. I've done google already, but every site has a different amount for children.
I was just wondering if anyone here had some ideas or could share how much their children drink. I'm lucky if I can get my kids to drink one or two 16 oz cups in a day. Often its just one 16 oz cup of juice (or milk). SOMETIMES they also drink one 16 oz cup of water.
