Do you put your kid to bed with a drink?

Like milk or water? I don't use juice... is it still bad? And he doesnt fall asleep with it in his mouth, he takes it to bed.. drinks it and throws the cup before he falls asleep

  • I let my DS have a sippy cup of water, that he keeps by his bed at night. I guess me and DH that if we wake up in the middle of the night, thirsty, he does, too. delete your answer

  • Milk is a bad idea, it has sugar in it and can rot their teeth. My 2 year old will take a sippy cup of water to bed, but it's almost always still full in the morning. I think it's a security thing with her. But always just water.

  • I've heard water only if given a drink to take to bed. Milk would sit on the teeth and could cause cavities. Even if he tosses the cup, any milk left in his mouth could settle on the teeth. The teeth should be cleaned after the last food of the day, including milk.
