Lately Gavyn, who is 3, has been EXTREMELY thirsty. He is drinking something non stop. He either has a bottle of water, or a cup with Crystal Lite in it. He has not been urinating more than usual though.
Could this be due to the heat? Or should I be worried?

Crystal Lite should NEVER be given to a child. Artificial sweetners should not be given to children and a child as young as 3 drinking a lot of it every day could have organ damage. I encourage you go to the doctors and have your child's lab work checked.
Children should only drink water. The AAP says children can have 4 oz of juice a day. No pop, soda, KoolAid, juice drinks, lemonaid, slusshies, milk shakes, fruit smoothies, or anything else. Artificial sweetener is worse than sugar.
