How do I get my son to go to bed without a drink?

Hi! We started giving my son his bottle in the living room before bed. We sit on the couch with him turn down the lights, turn of the tv and read him a book and then give him the bottle (or vice versa). He loves books so it's also a good "wind down" activity at night.

I would try giving him a drink before you take him to his room. Let him drink it, then before you take him to go to bed tell him he needs to leave the cup on the table/counter and he can have it back in the morning. He will probably get upset about it for a while, but just keep at it. I had to do this with my son. After I quite breastfeeding I switched him to a cup and then had to wean him from that at night. After that I don't let him have much to drink for an hour before bed now, to avoid leaking out of his diaper at night. Hope this helps!
