In a recent trip to the pool I noticed the change in my daughter's demeanor as we left. She complained of a headache and was not feeling well. Then it hit me; she was dehydrated. Although dehydration is common; it's accentuated by being at the pool. It's easy to think because you're in water that you won't get dehydrated, but being surrounded by water does not lessen the chances dehydration.
Dehydration is a concern in and out of the pool, and simple changes in the way you drink water can help you and your kids avoid dehydration at the pool.
