I need some advise on how to break the habit of a sippie cup at night....UPDATE in pink##

Posted by   + Show Post

My one year old drinks basically a cup (in his sippie cup) of milk at night, i need some tips on how to completely get rid of it. I dont want it anymore. He knows how to drink out of a  straw. Im breaking him from the sippie cup first (day and night) And then i will start sleep training him to sleep on his own, i know he can, he just doesnt want to. There is another baby on the way so a lot of things are about to change. Sooo one other question, how in the world do i deal with the nighttime crying for his sippie cup? I know he can fall asleep without it theres just the problem of him staying asleep without it....what do i do? Advise plz!!!

well i have been brushing his teeeth morning and night and only been giving him water in his sippie cup, and sice i know he can sleep by himself during the day i let him cio till he falls asleep, may seem harsh but thats the only thing that works and not to mention he is almost two, its time to learn to sleep on his own!! He has been throwing a lot of tempers about water :p but i dont give in bc i know it is better for his teeth! :) thanks for all the advise!

Water only in the sippy cup. Nothing wrong with having a cup of water to sip on at night.

Why bother?

He's growing in his sleep, using almost as much energy as when he's awake. You can either supply him with a bedside snack that he can safely eat alone in the night, or get up and find him some other food when he wakes up hungry.

Really, for a two year old?

A full-grown adult 2yo or the kind that are still growing while they sleep?

My growing 2yo never had a bedtime snack nor woke up in the middle of the night for one.

This explains why some children can't potty train either. Too much drinks and snacks.

Wow, that is totally magical thinking:

Lots of kids need to eat in the night. Mine did --and both potty trained on their own well before they were 2.5yo.

Many 2yos don't need to eat in the night; some do. Lots of 2yos learned nearly 2 years ago not to bother trying to get anything in the night, regardless of what it might be.
