Night Time Sippy Cup!!

Elizabeth Vander - posted on 07/30/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My daughter is 2 1/2 years old and she uses her sippy cup like a bottle. She refuses to go to bed without it. She wakes me up between 1-2 times a night to refill the sippy cup and because of this she wets through her night time pull up. She is potty trained during the day time but because of the sippy cup I am going to have a hard time night time potty training. This mommy wants a full night of sleep and doesn't want to wash bedding daily. I need some techniques to make is as easy and as painless as possible for the both of us to toss the sippy at night

This sounds like a lot of water! How much is she drinking during the day? If your daughter is getting most of her fluids at night I would try increasing the amount of water she consumes during the day and see if her overnight consumption drops off. If she's drinking as much or more during the day I would take her to the doctor. That really sounds like a lot of liquids in a 24 hour period! So I can get some sleep, I would move up a size in the pull-ups and give her a water bottle instead of a sippy cup when she goes to bed. A water bottle will hold enough that you won't need to refill it. If you look around you can probably find one that the sippy cup top will fit on if she doesn't like the water bottle top. Lastly, night training is a lot more about maturity and bladder control than it is about how much you drink. Your child has to be very close to success with night training for limiting liquids to make any difference.
