Ty has his gtube so most goes in there but he rarely gets anything to drink besides water. I hate water, I don't want him to. So far he seems to have a love for it and will choose it over juice or Elecare

Jacob gets what he needs through his tube. But I do give him little bits by mouth when his mouth seems dry.

Lina used to drink water so much that I would guess it had to be 3/4 of a gallon a day. Now she doesn't drink as much but she still drinks probably the 8 glasses a day they say you need. Her brother and sister are harder to get to drink water.

He does better with water than anything else. But it's still not much.

Maggie and zack drink a ton if water! Jeremiah will throw a fit if you give him some. He always wants chocolate milk, pediasure, or juice.

Brady gets most of it through his g-tube, but he is starting to drink some by mouth.
