Of late, the school even myself have difficulty getting Yvette to drink water during the daytime. She has not been drinking much water since last Nov’10 although I have reported she is drinking a lot of water when she just attended school last Sept’10.
My estimation of her daily water consumption during the day time will be about 100 to 150 ml plain water and 2 packet of 250 ml chocolate milk which I not sure she did she finish them. Sometimes over the weekends, we will try to encourage her to drink more by giving her soya milk from market or we will give her Ribena.
As such, she does develop a habit of drinking plenty of water (half a bottle or sometimes even a full bottle of Pigeon Mag bottle) just before her bed time. I have never stop her on this but this bring me another problem. She will wet the bed thereafter. (sometimes she could wake up sometimes she could hold them all the way till next day morning.) And also I conclude her bad breath (I notice sometimes it is not there) when intake of water is not sufficient.
Is there any tip I could get this girl to drink more water?
P/S: Layers of protection are placed on our bed to avoid changing of our bedsheet. I only need to clean Yvette and remove the protection in the middle of the night after I sense (I am light sleeper) it is wet (again).
