It can be a sign of diabetes.

It can be, but it can also be normal for some kids. Both my kids drink like fish. For a while my daughter actually preferred drinks over food.



OP if you're worried about diabetes other signs to look for besides thirst is sweet smelling urine, rapid, unexplained weight loss despite increase in appetite, fatigue or change in behavior.
