Mother of three!! My son Isaac is 2 1/2. He learned to get out of his crib at 9 months. He sleeps with his big brother that is 7 years old. Then he ends up in mommy and daddy's bed, because he wakes up for his sippy cup two times in the night. What can I do to break him from his sippy cup and getting into my bed. He is completely potty trained, but due to him drinking to much he wets my bed. Help!!!! Thank you!! :)

I would not give him the sippy in the middle of the night, unless you think he is really thirsty and needs the water. If you do give it to him, give it to him in the kitchen and tuck him back into his own bed. Try to make sure he gets enough water during the day so that he is not dehydrated at night.

Technically, he's not completely potty trained because if he were completely trained he would wake up to go potty at night, so he wouldn't be wetting the bed whether he had too much to drink or not. Until he is completely trained, have him wear pull-ups or cloth trainers at night. His body just needs a little more time to mature--waking to go potty is not something you can train him to do before he is ready. It requires a physical development that does not usually take place before 3 years.
