Are you drinking enough water breastfeeding moms?????? how much water do you drink every day? when i was nursing, i would aim for 100oz/day, but most days made it closer to 80oz.

I don't drink any water. I know, slap my hands!!! I hate it, it makes my mouth feel dry or something. I drink a lot of milk though, and they say you don't actually need water, just liquid. I also drink far too much Pepsi. I'm like a walking breastfeeding what-not-to-do

Thanks to Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for this beautiful sig!

I try to get 100 oz/day but some days I only get 90 oz or so (although this is counting all liquid, not just water). I must be doing something right because DS weighed in at 14 lbs 3 oz today at 2 months old!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

I don't drink enough water, I make an effort for every pop to have a bottle of water.

I definitely don't drink the 'recommended' amount of water. I drink to thirst, most days. Drinking the 100oz you're 'supposed' to makes me feel like I'm drowning!
