I don't think it's a bad idea for your son to have access to water throughout the night. I mean I get very thirsty sometimes at night. I don't see the need to break him of the habit. Water isn't going to cause problems like milk or juice do. As he gets older he can keep a cup of water at his bedside instead of the sippy. We always gave my ds a sippy of water at bedtime. Plus if he is used to nursing to sleep then the sucking is probably very comforting for him.
