Hi, I'm not sure if any of you remember me, I was a regular here in 2008/2009 EPing for my daughter Freya. I HUTH when she was 14 month and since had another baby. Sylas was born 12 weeks ago and he's breastfeeding like a pro! Because Freya has cows milk intolerance, I decided to start EPing for her again. She currently has between 21 and 25 oz per day. My question is: is she having too much/ how much is she supposed to drink? She'd drink much more if I let her :) Has anyone got experience with EPing for older child? Thanks in advance xxx

24ozs seems about right. My 2 year old drinks alot of milk, juice, and water but she normally has about 3 cups of milk which are 8oz cups and then in between meals she has fruit/vegs juice probably 2 times a day, and i let her drink as much water as she wants. Hope this helps
