My son drinks like 6 bottles of milk a day/night and eats three meals a day. He doesnt like drinking juice that much he would rather have milk. Is that to much for him? He is only a year old. Also should he be drinking anything during night hours? I believe he uses the bottle to sooth him back to sleep because he even will drink it if it has water in it. I was just wondering really how much milk/juice/water he should have in a 24 hour period. Thanks for any advice.  : )

I was always told no bottles to bed, and sippy cups by one year. As far as how much milk, I gave it when they wanted it, which wascabout 6, 6oz cups per day

Thanks Ladies. Yeah I cant get my son to take a sippy, he spills his soft tip sippy all over him because it comes out to fast and if i get a hard tipped one he has nothing to do with it. He cant drink out of a cup yet.. well he could but he always insist on spilling things, lol. He will not go back to sleep without something to drink in the middle of the night. He doesnt need to do that, does he?? Should I just make him cry it out as mean as that may seem to me?? I would like to get some sleep, because here in July im having another little baby.
