well almost 2 my son is 23 months and he drinks 80+ oz of water a day as well as a few cups of milk and juice. He is in perfect health other wise and eats a ton. But it seems like a lot of liquid and I was wondering how much is too much. Oh and he asks for the water.
Since he's drinking so much water, there is little time for his body to absorb all the nutrients from his food. Most of it is being flushed out by the water. As PP excessive thirst can be a sign of diabetes.
I would try slowly cutting back the amount of liquids he is drinking and definitely talk to his pediatrician about that amount of water. Adults typically don't even need that much water.
