    Default Is this enough fluids?

    DD is 7mo and eats 3 solid meals a day (sometimes rice cereal w/ EBM, sometimes baby food, sometimes table food like banana, avocado, bread, potato, etc). Sometimes she gets a few sips of water or watery juice throughout the day, but not much. She nurses every 3 hours or so and sleeps through the night. So, my question is just to be sure; With at least 5-6 wet diapers per day, is nursing only 6x per 24 hours enough to keep her hydrated? TIA

    Mady nurses 6 times a day too and sleeps through the night. So far, we've only been giving her one meal a day with a bit of water in a sippy cup. Her wet diaper output hasn't changed, so I don't think theres anything to worry about. If you're still worried, maybe feed her some juicy fruits so she'll be getting some fluids out of them? Right now Mady's on a pear kick, she'll sit and suck the juices out of one for an hour!
