IF THE CHILD HAS A STRONG FAMILY HISTORY OF DIABETES i.e. eitber mom or dad is diabetic or mother had diab dhring preg or when born baby was large size.......then there is such a risk .nevertheless a blood sugar screening now and later after 6 mths if needed can rule out diabetes

If you are having such a doubt then do report to your Pediatrician and get it confirmed. He shall be subjected to a blood test and also serum insulin levels. Depending the results, a conclusion could be drawn.
