My son drinks SO much! I'm talking up to 10 refills of his sippy cup a day...and it doesn't matter what's in the cup...water, juice, milk, etc. Generally, I give him a cup of milk when he wakes up in the morning with breakfast, and a cup of milk with dinner. During the day he drinks diluted (50/50) apple juice or water. When I give him his cup, he immediately starts sucking it down until every last drop is gone, then he begs and cries for more! I have been cutting him off here lately, even though he throws major tantrums for "more appa juss!" Aside from going through gallons of apple juice, this makes him pretty much constantly pee, which is really thwarting our potty training attempts. Any ideas as to what's going on? I have had him tested for diabetes, and it came up negative. He will do the same thing with cups that don't have lids...it just takes him longer...
