Would second going to GP.

Is there a reason why you aren't offering milk when she wakes ? Could she be hungry?

I would cut out the squash. Water a better bet if not milk.

I would take her to the GP, all that squash and she's still thirsty, this could mean a health problem.

In the meantime she might find plain water more thirst-quenching?

Weak squash

what do you give her to drink in the sippy cups?

Yes as long as I can rem she has always been like this

Has this always been the case? If not, get her checked out for diabetes as bring thirsty is an early symptom.

My dd 8 months is constantly thirsty and wakes up in the night 2 or 3 times for a drink and has a full small zippy cup at a time. At a guess she has 7 or 8 small zippy cups a day plus 18oz milk. Is this normal and how can I help her sleep better?
