Any suggestions on taking away cup at bedtime?

My oldest drinks milk from a sippy cup at night. I want to stop this because if she wakes up in the middle of the night she looks for it and gets up for more. I know she doesnt need this cup to go to sleep she is just used to having it. At day care she never uses one for nap!..

Try gradually putting less and less water in there. Whenever it gets to the point where you wouldn't be putting anymore in there, don't give him one. Don't even bring it up. If he asks, just tell him Mr. Sippy went night night or on a trip and will be back in the morning.
