Paediatrician

It is unusual for a baby of your son's age to want to drink so much water. As drinking a lot of water can be one of the early signs of diabetes in young children,it is important that your baby's urine is tested to make sure that there is no glucose [sugar] in his urine.It would be best to ask a paediatrician to see him.
