Do what you feel comfortable doing, but my son always has something to drink too! He's 17 months, and it's just been so darn hot out that I dnt want him to dehydrate! He usually gets milk first thing in the morning and late evening, and throughout the day I usually won't give him more than 2 cups of juice, and the rest is water...and he has a really good appetite too! I honestly don't see anything wrong with it, but if you think it's something to be concerned about, don't hesitate going to the dr! Good luck!

I would only be worried if it wasn't either water or milk. If she was drinking lots of juice or anything else. If anything does bother you you should always take her to the dr.
