then try to shift her dinner time like around 9-9:30 try this also see if there is any difference. and for water at night u have to give her water any how. if she cries take her to your lap try to console her then slowly either by bottle or glass or spoon whatever work try that. u may also need help of her father so you both will have to be ready. slowly gradually she will accept that. make sure to not give any juice or other sweetener mixed with water else it may lead to caries later

thanks Shweta and puloma.. I want to tell she don't drink milk at all ..I have to give her milk made things or rusk bread in the milk. I feed her properly at 8:30 pm still she wakes up 4-5 times. I tried to give her water at night but she refuses and demands for breastfeeding . otherwise cry a lot. what to do.

toffee chocolate at night , a big No. but yes if u r travelling these chocolate sometimes becomes very handy. for stopping breast feeding at night. give dinner to your daughter at 8 pm around then at 9-9:30 give a half glass of milk. this will keep her tummy full and she can sleep for 4-5 hrs at stretch keep her water bottle and try feeding her whenever she wakes mid night. babies generally wakes as they are thirsty and hence they ask for Breast feed. try out this may it help you.
