I cant tell her she cant have a drink befor bed.......But I fill that cup 3-4 times over befor she goes to sleep. Do I tell her no? Maybe replace the milk with water so she doesnt want it so much? What works?

I would definately limit it abit. My son was doing the same thing so we did 2 things: One, we switched to the overnight pull ups (if she is still in diapers they make overnight diapers that are extra absorbancy too). Two, my sons bedtime is 9pm, so at 8 I fill his cup, 8:30 he has to sit with me or his dad for what we call snuggle time, 9pm is time to go in his bed, then I only give him 1/2 cup to go to bed with. I'm slowly working on tapering the 1/2 off so that he will eventually have no cup in bed with him. And some nights he will call out when his 1/2 cup is gone and want more, but I just stand firm and tell him NO that it is time for bed.

My son was the same way, we were always having to change sheets. The overnight diapers really do work great, but they are expensive. We were able to stop the milk at night, it took a while of slowly weaning him off, starting with giving only a 1/2 cup then telling him he could just have water. Now he doesn't even ask for any and he has started to eat more.

Absolutely limit it! She's not thirsty, she's seeking your attention! I give my daughter 1/2 cup of water on her nightstand and that's it. Never juice or milk - bad for their teeth!!! She fussed a few times but I never gave in and that saved me. I watched a friend of mine who came to visit with her 2 daughters and they woke her up every hour and a half to two hours for a new cup and she would get up and refill their cups - with chocolate milk!!! I couldn't believe it!!! I helped her break her kids - and her - of that awful habit. So, if they can do it, so can you!!!
