It wouldn't hurt to get him checked or diabetes especially if it runs in your family. My son is 2 1/2yrs old and drinks before going to bed also but this has been his routine since he was born. Get him checked out so you have peace of mind.

Glad to hear he's okay. My son insists on taking a sippy cup to bed. We only fill it a quarter full. Some mornings it's empty and other mornings it's still a quarter full.

my 2 year old does this he was tested but came back negative thankfully.i think he uses his juice as comfort as i admit i used to feed him to sleep as a baby as he had colic.if anyone else has had a baby with colic would understand why i did it.so it's now what he is used to.

If you give your child too much to drink you will wash all the salt out of his system and he'll end up having fits. My friend told me her mate did it to her little one. Get him checked, but I'd cut down if he's having more than enough.
