As long as needed: If the only reason u have frequency is drinking too much then the change will need to be permanent. If its while u are making other changes- stopping caffeine and water pills, bladder training kegels then u may be able to resume fluids at 80-100 ounces per day.

Can lessening my baby's dairy intake lessen her congestion?
8 doctor answers • 12 doctors weighed in

No: The quick answer "no" probably holds for most situations. But, in a subset of children, cow milk allergy is aggravated by the ingestion of dairy products prompting increased congestion. Parents perhaps notice the intake of milk can often trigger a "phlegm effect" in the back of their throat--probably driving the notion that dairy produces increased mucous. Yet a sip of water can easily clear this.

Fluids and Softeners: Increase your fluid intake. Also using stool softeners is very helpful. Most prescription prenatal vitamins have a little bit of a softerner in it, but most pregnant women need more.
