Is this normal to drink at night and having frequent urination ?

My 2 year old drinks a lot during the night.... and pees the bed! My 2 year old son drinks at the most 3 sippy style cups of juice or water everynight. Problem is even with 2 diapers on he is wetting the bed and also wakes me up all night long for his drink. I change him at least 3 times, once before bed once in the middle of the night and then about 2 hours before he wakes up and he still pee the bed. Everyone says it could be something like diabetes or something as simple as a habit. If I tell him no he gets out of bed crying for his juice/water and won t go back to sleep until he gets it. PLease help!

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
It is just out of habit and may be he actually feels the thirst which wakes him up at night. Make sure he does not sleep for more than one hour during the day and dont let him till 10 o'clock at night so that he gets a deep sleep at night.
