TIP: How much should your baby or child drink per day
What does water do in your body. Some children drink very much, others very little. But what is normal and healthy? How much fluid should a baby or child drink at least per day? And what about warm weather?
Babies up to a year
Whether you're breastfeeding or bottle feeding, the number of dirty diapers tells you the first weeks whether your baby is drinking enough. At the end of the first week, your baby will have four to six full wet diapers per day and two to five puffy diapers. In addition to the amount of full diapers, if you bottle-feed, you can see on this feeding schedule whether your baby drinks as much as recommended. Water, a super drink. Drink more water in hot weather.
Do you breastfeed? Then it may be that your child poops a lot less often, because the nutrients in breast milk are almost completely absorbed in the body of your baby. With breastfed babies it is important to watch your baby and your breasts. You can decide whether he has drunk enough.

tip. Bottled water, Tap water or filtered water.
Children between 1 and 4 years
Your child has to drink about one liter per day from his first birthday to stay healthy. That's about five glasses a day. Until the age of four, your child needs two cups of milk a day to become big and strong. In addition, your toddler or toddler only need to drink three glasses of water or other liquid to get the daily recommended liter. If your child does not like regular milk, then you can also choose to give him yogurt or curd cheese. This is not covered by drinking, so that means two extra cups of water or other moisture. For children with cow's milk allergy soy drinks with added calcium and vitamin B12 are a good alternative.
The Nutrition Center recommends parents to have their child drink water instead of lemonade, thick juice or other (soft) drinks. Not only is there a lot of sugar in most other drinks, but your child also gets used to the sweet taste. If you want to give your child something other than water or milk, light tea is a healthy alternative.
Children over 4 years
Infants and all other children weighing more than 20 kilograms must drink as much as adults: between 1.5 and 2 liters of water per day. Naturally, it also applies to these children that they are better able to drink water than soft drinks.
Warm weather: so much extra moisture your child needs.
The first six months
- When it's hot, your baby needs to drink extra because he, just like you, loses extra moisture through perspiration. Also, sufficient moisture ensures that the body temperature of your child does not rise too much. If you give your baby bottle-feeding, then you can have your child in addition to the regular diet, occasionally five to ten cc. let water drink from a bottle. This does not seem like much, but more is not wise before your child is six months old. Because the kidneys of young babies have not yet grown, more water can drain too much sodium. This may result in a shortage which is dangerous for the health of your baby. If you are breastfeeding, drink about 700 to 1000 ml yourself. extra one day and put your baby more often. The number of wet diapers on a day, even when it's hot, is a good indication if your child gets enough fluid.
- 6 months to 1 year
- If your baby is older than six months, you can add 15 - 20 cc of extra water to each bottle to provide extra moisture. Give yourself breastfeeding, drink more yourself or give your baby water from a bottle if he is used to drinking from it.
- Toddlers and toddlers
- From his first birthday, your child needs about one liter of fluid a day, as said. In warm weather it is good to give some extra cups of water or other moisture. There is no limit to this, but do not overdo it. You can tell by the number of diapers or the color of the urine if your child is sufficiently hydrated. If the urine is very dark, your child needs more fluid.
