Drinking Before bedtime

Brandi R. - posted on 02/11/2015 ( 2 moms have responded )




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?

If he is 1 yrs old then he should be off the bottle. There should be no need to change a diaper in the middle of the night for a 1 yr old. I did not even always change my kids' diapers in the middle of the night when they were newborns. That tends to wake them up more and in the middle of the night that was the last thing I wanted to do.
