My son is 2 yrs plus and he used to take milk in the middle of the night. maybe it was a habit from me in scare that he was hungry in night. If i do not give him, he will move from side to side till I awake and make it to him. How can I stop him from taking milk in the middle of the night.

Just stop it cold turkey and feed him a bigger meal at dinner. You should never give your child anything but water at night as it can rot their teeth.

Water it down, keep doing that until it's water only. Chances are he won't want it anymore. It's VERY bad for his teeth,
