Drinking Before bedtime

I have a one-year old and I let him drink as much as he wants during the the course of the day. He then eats a hearty dinner between 6 and 630, he drinks a partial cup then to top off his meal, he never pees in the bed. When his dad gives him a bottle before bedtime, he always pees out of his diaper, then tells me I'm failing him because I'm not changing him throughout the night, like I did when he was a new born. Ladies what are your thoughts? Am I a failing mom?

NO! That's absurd! So, first, the fact that your one year old is sleeping through the night is a sign that you are a great mama!! Second, what nighttime diaper do you use? If you haven't already, get Pampers Baby Dry 12 hour. I was experiencing the same thing with other diapers and then started using this one in the largest size that will fit him so there is lots of extra room to absorb. Okay, last, sounds like you may want to sit dad down for a little chat. If he is going to give him a bottle before bed (which is sweet and hopefully some good father/son time), then he should wake up for the midnight changing also. One other thought, can you bump dinner up to 5:30 and include a little bit of a bottle, then cut dad's bottle down a bit? Not sure if any of this is helpful but thought I would share. Good luck!
