In brief: Ok for water

It's ok if you are adding milk to water to get her to drink water. However, this should not be used as a milk substitute or way to "extend" the milk.

In brief: Milk is fine

A one year old doesn't need to drink free water. She should continue drinking milk.
At this point, she should be graduating to a sippy cup or even a regular cup, with supervision.
