weaning 1 year old questions

hope I'm in the right folder...:)

I have weaned 1-year-old DD to two nursing sessions a day (wake-up and bedtime) and am planning on continuing that indefinitely. I have a couple of questions.

1. DD is not very interested in drinking from a cup, bottle or glass; I figure she may take in 4-5 oz a day. Whoever is with her tries at every meal to offer water and milk, and I *reluctantly* started diluted apple juice. She seems to have enough wet diapers...what should I look for as signe that the fluid intake in insufficient beyond the wet diapers, or any tricks to get her to drink more (even EBF is not a hit)

2. If I need to skip a night once in a while, can my supply "withstand" the occasional skipped nursing now that there are only 2 sessions a day?


(with a big pat on the back for making it a full year!)
