  • Well first juice has a lot of sugar, so I say stop all the sugary drink.  You might want to bring him to the doctor. Extreme thirst is a sign of Diabetes

  • My 2 year old loves to drink. Milk. Water Juice. Fortunately, he hates soda. He's gotten into a cup every now & then. He'll make a disgusted face, shake his head, and put it down. He just loves to drink. I'll usually get 100% juices w/ no added sugar or water down his juices. I'll also try to give him more milk than anything else.

  • thirst is ok, but you might want to cut his juice with some water (like 1/2 and 1/2) It helps with the sugar intake and the calories.

  • Why are you complaining? It's very good! I struggle to get my kids to drink water.

  • I don't think it was a complaint as much as a question. Bu,t yes I think a lot of drinking is good for him, as long as they are healthy drinks. If you are concerned, call the Dr. to ease your mind.
