How much liquid should he have before bed?

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

My litttle guy will be 18 months in a couple weeks, at 6 pm he has 8 oz of milk then heads to bed, we change his bum at 12 but he is waking up at 4-530 am with a full diaper. I am not sure when to not give him liquids at night and how much to give him... dont wanna dehydrate the poor kiddo... first time! lol:)

That is what I thought:) thanks I am gonna keep giving him his bottle before he goes down for the night, I am lucky he stays asleep even when I change his bumm at midnight so I am not gonna change my routine no matter what anyone says:) Thanks for the help:)

We let our babies drink when they're thirsty.

It's actually a myth that drinking after "such and such a time" will cause a baby to pee in the middle of the night. It all has to do with maturity of the baby's system.

I wouldn't withhold any drinks from the babe. If he's thirsty, let him drink.
