Every day, we lose body fluids (water and other liquids) in our urine, stool, sweat, and tears. We replace the lost fluids by eating and drinking. But this might not be the process every toddler follows. It becomes important for us as a parent to monitor their fluid intakes to ensure a hydrated toddler.
