  • My son never did take a bottle to bed but I did lay him in his bed with him proped up to give him a bottle ( I know not a good thing, but the only way I could get him to sleep when he was younger)

  • My daughter never did. It is terrible for their teeth and can cause major problems.

  • No, a bottle is NEVER good to take to bed. That is a habit that would be very hard to break.

  • No bottle to bed is not good.. Not only can it cause teeth issues, but it causes a habbit that will be very hard to break and can also end up giving you child a tummy ache from the air they end up sucking once the bottles gone and ear infection.. personally my son now (he's 17 months) takes a sippy with water to bed because he was waking up during the nigh to get a drink bcause his mouth was dry but he doesnt go to sleep with it in his mouth he doesnt even go to sleep drinking it.. It sits in the corner of the pack-n-play and when he wakes up he gets a drink or two and goes back to sleep.. Bottles are NEVER to be sent to bed like that ever.. Ask your pedi and see what kind of reaction you get cause I bet it wont be good
