How much do your 2 year olds drink?

My DDs going to be 2 in a few weeks and I have noticed lately that she seems to be drinking loads. She has been ill recently with a bad cold and cough, so wasnt sure if she was drinking more because she had a sore throat.
She seems to be mostly over the cold now, still seems a bit run down, and the drinking has continued.
In a day she probably drinks 4-5 of her cups of very very diluted squash, which averages out at about 2 pints if not slightly more. She doesnt have a bottle at night anymore, just a bit of water if she asks for it, before she goes to sleep or sometimes if she wakes in the night.
Have googled diabetes which does show that she has some symptoms of it, so before I think about taking her to the doctors was hoping to see how much everyone elses toddlers drink. Thanks x

my dd drank next to nothing at that age (still does!). ds (3) on the other hand drinks like there is no tomorrow and thinks nothing of downing a full cup in a couple of minutes

Well not as much as me, just the odd gin and tonic when we go out to the pub.

Only joking. Not nearly as much as I would like her to, I keep having to nag her to drink her water. And she seems to have utterly gone off milk. sad

my dd1 went through a huge drinking spree at just under 2yo - think she just enjoyed the cups! She woudl soak through her nappy frequently.

She is now 2.4yo and drinks nowhere near as much - cup novelty has worn off.
