I would be pushing more water over anything. From 12 months to 24 months they should only be drinking 2 1/2 to 3 cups of milk a day and water in between.

My 13.5 months old only gets 3 cups of milk a day and water in between plus 1 4oz cup of juice a day. I only give juice cause her meds can't be mixed with water or milk due to the awful taste from only water but 100% not safe to have with milk. Lol

Does she drink water?? You could try some cumcumber slices in water with a little bit of lemon juice...

I've started giving her water now!(: She drinks it a lot now just for some reason that daycare gave me the complete wrong impression about what she should and shouldn't have. That's why i always come to BG:P
