2 year old waking for milk in the night.

My 2 yr old has always woken for a bottle in the night but he has started to wake up to 3 times!

Can anyone advise how i can "break" this habbit?

Do i ignore him? I have done this a couple of times & it takes him about 6 mins to settle & go back to sleep - waking about 2 hrs later.

Or should i swap for warm water? He will not be fooled i think so as soon as he has a sip of water he will say "milk".

Any suggestions are welcome - thanks

I would ignore him, if he goes right back to sleep then there is no reason not to.

If you feel you have to give him something leave a sippy cup full of water and then ignore him if he gets up since you know he's got something to drink.

Don't give him milk, you're getting him into a really bad habit of waking up and he's to old to need milk in the middle of the night.
