well my mom just always told me to try not to do it simply because they get into the habbit of having something to soothe them to sleep and as they get older the last cup of milk they had to put them to sleep may not be enough and may go back to waking in the middle of the night wanting more. I have heard of the deal with rotting teeth but I really don't think it makes a difference weather they drink it then to go bed or drink it in bed so about that one i'm not so sure.

Quoting Ashli faye:

bad bad bad rotting teeth and ear infections ear infections cause loss of hearing which slows speach teeth decay causes the teeth to fall out before they should and he will have false teeth til his pernment teeth grow in you need your baby teeth dont belive the whole they will fall out no matter what and i know cause my brothers baby teeth fell out when he was 3 years old my son didnt sleep with milk but had bad ear infections the first thing the doctor asked was if he was sleeping with milk so stop now hold her in your lap and feed the sippy cup then put her to bed i do it with my girl and she is find no ear aches no infections u will spend ur life in the E Rlike i did if u dont stop



My son has had 11 ear infections and he doesn't go to bed with a bottle.....what i do is rock him while he drinks his bottle and then when i put him in bed i give him a sippy of water....i know that i wake in the middle of the night for a drink, so whats why i give him a sippy of water...most of the time he doesn't drink any of it untill he wakes in the morning, but i wouldn't give him milk to go to sleep....it will cause rotting teeth.....
