Hello friends, my son is 18 months old and he asks for milk at night almost twice. My mother said that it's not that good for him. If I refuse to give, he will cry loud banging his legs. Unable to solve this problem. Please anyone help me whether it is good or not. If not how to get rid of this?

If the child is hungry then you probably can't go without feeding him. He will not sleep in empty stomach. My son eats his dinner by 7:30 so he is hungry again by bed time. I give him milk so that he can sleep. However, I don't force him to drink it all. He drinks to his heart's content and then he is set for the night.

Try to feed him full in dinner. Just check if he's hungry or just demanding as habit. If hungry try to feed him full and make him drink water. If its habit, then try to reduce feed to one first, then slowly second if you will try for both Time together then its tuff.

hi give him milk in the glass then don't stop his milk. warm milk in the night is good for everyone it's good for a sound sleep.... n later it will help in do potty in the morning when he will start his school.
