My son is 2 years old and always stays up and very hyper at 2-5 in the morning. Does this sound like he's adhd?

ADHD : Not necessarily adhd. Adhd can emerge in preschool and toddlers but what us critical is that you talk with your pediatrician about your concerns. As a start, it sounds like your family's sleep cycles are way off. Log your son's sleep and activity patterns. Be sure he's getting adequate opportunities for active play, especially outdoors & in nature, everyday. Reach out today!
