My 2 y.o. night problems drinking all night

Hells1980 - posted on 10/14/2015 ( 3 moms have responded )




My daughter is 2 years old. It all started when she was a baby we allowed her to sleep in the bed with us instead of her crib. Now I am paying the price for it. She drinks bottles all night which means she wakes up all night. Which also means she pees in the bed all night. I need help I need to know how to get this baby and her own bed and get her to stop drinking sippy cups all night. I work over night so I need a plan both my husband I can enforce.

I need my life back.

First thing is to quit allowing her to have the sippy cup. Fluids should be stopped a couple of hours before bed, if she's potty trained, and it needs to be consistent.
If you work nights, daddy needs to be strong and NOT give in. Yes, it will be a struggle at first, but it needs to happen, sooner, rather than later.

Also to add to Sarah's comment is to start putting her into her own bed in her own room and again repeat putting here there until she gets the idea. Sleepless nights still but it won't be long.

Stop giving her the sippy cup at night. It will probably take some time and some sleepless nights. Habits are hard to change and take some transition time.
