Infant wont take fluids

My 8month old daughter will not drink any fluids whatsoever.  She has never taken a bottle, she will not drink from any type of cup, sippy cup, or even a syringe.  She is eating pureed baby food quite well.  Is this ok?

Are you feeding her formula or is she breastfed? If she is breastfed and eating pureed baby food that is fine. If she is only taking in pureed food and no baby formula, you need to find food to substitute the formula nutrients so she is able to grow properly.
