    Default How much water should a toddler drink?

    My DS is 17 months old. He doesn't drink anything other than water through the day and some milk before bed.

    He has around 5/600mls a day.

    How much should he be drinking? Is he getting enough?

    From memory it's around 100ml per kilo so if he is 10kg then 1000ml per day - which can be made up from drinking water, milk and high water content foods like fruit and veg - over the age of 3 I think 1200- 1500ml is average for the day
    as long as he is having a few wet nappies a day and the clearer the urine the more hydrated he is - this is the age to try increase water consumption as they tend to run around more !

    Thank you! I think I need to get more water into him. He's 14.5kgs. Only has one 240ml bottle on top of his water intake.
