    Default Toddler nursing - getting enough liquids?

    Thanks to you ladies, my 14 mo. lo is still nursing!!! Despite several nursing strikes during the summer...we're still going strong. Now, she's back at daycare and nurses at 8 a.m., 4 p.m. and 2-3 times in the evening. She sleeps through the night.

    My concern is that she refuses to drink anything (bottle or sippy) during the 8 hours she's at daycare. We've tried juice, water, and milk. She eats plenty of fruits and veggies. Her diapers are normal.

    Is this enough liquids for her?

    I'm going to guess that she gets plenty of fluids when she does nurse. If she has a good number of wet diapers each day, she is hydrated. I would continue to offer her drinks (that sounds like I'm going to make her a margarita. . . ), but if she refuses, don't worry.

    We . . . no room in the bed for more!

    We love our cloth diapers!

    yeah, I guess you're right. It just seems like her nursing sessions are so short! But they get good at nursing at that age. Thanks!

    Can you make ME a margarita???
