I feel so bad :(

Yesterday was an awful day at work, plus I have some sort of cold/bug or something, and after picking up son (2 & 1/2) from daycare and getting home and situated I was pretty quiet and in a mood. Anyway that night (2:30am, morning actually) my son woke up for some water...ok, fine, gave him water, then he wanted more, sigh, ok, here's some more....then he wants milk (this is all in the same one time he woke up at 2:30, not 3 separate occasions) , so I said "no, no more, it's time to lay down and go back to bed"! He cries, I keep saying "no son, lay down, now"! Well, finally I yelled "LAY DOWN NOW"! He cries more...I give in, and give him milk....SMH! I'm horrible for yelling at him, I never get upset because he wants a drink or drinks at night! And what was the point of yelling if I gave in anyway, which I usually never give in, I feel awful and stupid.

  • I yell a lot more than I should, especially now with working midnight. No one is perfect. One little incident won't scar him for life.

  • I never let my kids drink in the middle of the night. Hard to potty train them. If you let the drink at night.
    From now on tell your child, no more drinking at night. Say that every night before bed.

  • Just grandkids are allowed to have a spill proof water bottle near their bed so they can take sips during the night.
