  • My daughter was like that. She was always drinking and did since she was born. Therefore she peed a lot and the in laws thought she had diabetes since she peed so much, but had her tested and she didn't. She also peed a lot at night and I thought she'd pee the bed forever but we finally had enough of the pull ups at night she would pee so much, she's 41/2 by the way, so we just took them away. She peed the bed for like two weeks straight and then all of the sudden she stopped. It's been about two months and she's had 1 accident at night. We also tried the no drinking anything for three hours before bed, that was hell because she always drank milk or water, but that didn't help. I'd have her tested for diabetes and if it comes back fine then I wouldn't worry too much. Just watch her and her habits and if anything is out of the ordinary then go to the doctor.

  • My nephew did that. Not sure why? It could be a sign of dibates.Get a 2nd opinion just to be safe. It also could be nothing, or that shes not getting enough water

  • what is she drinking? should be water - if it is mostly juice, the sugar is making her more thirsty - give her water, cut back on the juices, etc - within a week her body should balance out. and if she is growing, her body will crave water... water is a great remedy for growing pains, if consumed enough..
