I don't know what to do and was just wondering if there's anyone else out there in the same boat as me. My now 4yr old daughter has never been a big water drinker. I've read that she should be drinking 1.5 - 2L a day. I have to strongly encourage her to drink all day (can't leave the table until drunk water). This is what it looks like:
Breakfast, cup of milk - cup of water
MT - 1/2 cup water
Lunch - 1 cup water
AT - 1/2 cup water
Dinner - 1 cup water
If she goes to kindy I hope that she'll drink her whole water bottle but often comes home only having drunk 1/4 cups worth! Lately she's been having more and more wee accidents. To be honest it'd be so much easier to just let her drink how much water she wants to. I tried it yesterday and she drank 300ml the whole day. Today she drank a mouthful at breakfast and I'll be surprised if she drinks much at Kindy.
Do I keep up the strictness of it or just let her go?
I'm really in a bit of turmoil over this.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
