ds was 3 in April and he drinks a lot
so far today he has had 4 big anyway up cups of very weak squash
he will drink up to 10 cups a day i asked my hv a little while ago about it and she said well hes not skinny or dosnt look ill so there is nothing wrong with him just give him less
it has been hot but i don't know if i should be really concerned or not

Couple of large beakers of weak squashn and at least a pint of milk a day

Minimum a couple of glasses of milk and a couple of glasses of diluted fresh juice per day. Often more. If I can get some plain water into him at meal times, I will, too. 10 cups seems an awful lot, though. He is very active every day? Does he eat well? guess if he has no known health problems there is no harm.
