My daughter is 10 months old and I want her to drink more water on top of her milk, I offer her a sippy cup often but she won't drink any can I add something other ten juice to her water to get her to drink more?

Up until 12 months they don't need extra water. Breast milk or formula is enough for them.

Lead by example. Drink first, then let her drink. Make "Mhhh", sounds to show how good the water is.

i would try infusing the water with fruit. i did it with my son and it worked wonders. now he's almost 2 and drinks water throughout the day with no issues. he really liked strawberry water (cut up fresh strawberries and add about a cup to a liter of water for 2-3 days). you can also try different fruits or combinations to give variety
