I think teaching my son a bad habit, usually everynight around 1:30-2:00 am he starts crying & I hurry in give him a bottle with a little water so he doesn't fully wake up should I stop this?

  • How old is he? You might consider filling an extra bottle and tucking it into a corner of his crib. I do this with my daughter. When (if) she gets thirsty in the middle of the night, she can help herself. It works very well. Think of it as a leaving a glass of water on the nightstand when he's a little older.

  • I see nothing wrong with it. It is just a little water. My oldest would get a drink all through the night. Some kids get thirsty.
