My 2 1/2 year old is only urinating once or twice a day. We have tried to get him to drink plenty of water, but he has really become resistant to doing so. He seems to only want juice and chocolate milk. We are really trying to limit his drinking of these things, but at the same time, we want to make sure he is hydrating. I know stubbornness is part of his age and development, so we're not sure if we should let things play out naturally, or if there may be some other possible problem. Any thoughts?View Thread
