How do I break my 2 1/2 year old from the sippy cup at night and to start sleeping all night again?

Stop giving juice at night. That is SO bad for her teeth. Just give water. She will either take it or leave it and there is no harm either way. I wake during the night to drink and pee more often than my kids do, but they all do wake on occasion. It's perfectly normal. The trick is to make it so that her night wakings involve you as little as possible (preferably not at all).

my lil one slept like a champ the first year and really spoiled us. she was breastfed and fell asleep during that, then on the cup. She is one of those kids that when she is ready to give something up she does, but the cup is getting ridiculous at night. I started diluting the juice so much that she won't want it, hoping that it works soon.

Hi Autumn, when did your child sleep through the night and why did they stop? When does he/she use the sippy cup? Does he rely on it to fall asleep?
