Our ds, who is 14 months, drinks about 8-12 oz of H20 a day. It's the only beverage he'll drink from a cup (he doesn't like juice), and he drinks it with his meals and I generally let him have it with him throughout the day.
Since starting solids he had some trouble with constipation, so I'm thankful that he enjoys water as much as he does, but how much is too much?
This evening when I was getting him ready for his bath, he peed on the bathroom floor and his urine was colorless. It was only when I mopped it up with toilet paper that a faint yellow color was evident. He has lots of heavy wet diapers throughout the day too.
I know excessive thirst can be a sign of diabetes, but he has none of the other symptoms and seems to be in perfect health all the way around.
Sooooo, anyway, does anyone think he's getting too much water, or is there such a thing?
