    Default She likes water?!

    Not sure this goes in "solid foods" but, I wasn't sure where else to post it...DD3 is 8.5 mo...she has always liked to suck on the wash cloths during bath but, here in the last month or so, she actually tries to drink the water. We started trying to give her a sippy cup about a week ago and she has figured out how to suck on it and drink it. Is this good or bad? I'm concerned that she will fill her tummy with water and not want to nurse. Should I just not worry? It's so weird...neither of my other girls liked water til they were at least 18 mos!

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. My DD has only ever liked water, you couldn't get her to drink juice for anything!

    I would just keep an eye on how much you offer. Probably no more than 4-6oz per day.

    Oh...ok, I would say she can't have had more than a few ounces all day...I guess I should be happy that she has already learned how to drink out of a sippy cup! No problems transitioning her to that later on!
