I need help breaking my kids from sippy cups. We started a bad habit of letting them take them to bed and its time to put a stop to it. I knew it was a bad habit from the start but it came down to it I was a working mom with a husband who did not help at night time. I became desperate for sleep and I was getting really depressed and tired. Now it seems like they act like newborns constantly getting up getting a cuppy every 2 to 3 hours. I am hoping when the cuppy goes away and they get through the whole process it will help them sleep plus get them fully potty trained. I have tried to just take it away and let them scream, but we never succeed because my husband gets frustrated and gives it back. Any ideas? Im thinking cold turkey is the only way but if you have other suggestions it would be great? by the way my oldest is 3 and youngest is 2.
