hello... my 19 months old boy is on bottle milk.. he has a habit of having milk twice in the middle of night... how can I stop this... I have tried not giving him the bottle but he cries at top of his voice and thus I am forced to give in... I have also tried to replace milk with water.. that has also not helped as he understands and still cries. Please help.

hi shruti I knw what u taking abt my son is 21 months n from last one month I have stopped giving him milk in the night (at 5am he use to have it) slowly I decrease the amount of milk.... it's not the hunger it's the habit. giving milk while sleeping is not good for teeth.... coz of suger. u can slowly decrease the amount of milk in the night n see if it's working. I use to make a bottle n keep Inthe fridge n at 5 use to warm it up in microwave saves my time n sleep

Hi.. I never heard about this. Infact my daughter she is 1. 4*yrs stopped having milk at nights from one month. On the other hand my sisters daughter , she is 4 years, but still cries for milk at midnight.. As all babies are unique. , they will gradually change. I think u may worry that milk taken at midnight may not digest properly. Bt don't worry.. As kids involve in lots of physical activity it will digest soon. Unless n until he is having some issues, I feel you need nt worry abt feeding milk at midnight

Hi Sirisha.... I understand what you say but having milk at odd hours is not good for the health. For me bottle is not the concern but milk at midnight is.... thanks!

Why are u Trying to stop?? He may be really hungry.. I understand it is difficult to wake up at midnight after so much pressure since morning. But he may not sleep properly the whole night if he is on empty stomach.
