My child still wakes up about 5 times a night for a cup of milk…I know this is very bad for her teeth but its the only way I can get her to go back to sleep and get the much needed sleep that I need…what are some ways I can break this habit? How can I get her to sleep more?
slowly start watering it down little by little and if she starts noticing it tasting different just tell her " that means your growing up hunny, good job yay" she will eventually dislike the watered down stuff and just give it up herself… worked with my turkey
Put purée sweet potatoes or green beans in her milk before bed she’s waking up bc she’s hungry
Biologically Normal Infant & Toddler Sleep
How old is she? If still a toddler, it is still developmentally appropriate to wake up at night and want to “feed” or drink.
You can slowly start diluting the milk with water. Each day add a little more.
Say at night we drink water stick to your word might take a few nights but you can do this!
Maybe not enough calorie intake during the day
Try giving a snack before bed.
Try going cold turkey over a weekend or days you know You wouldn’t have to go anywhere.
Switch her over to water, or nothing.
It’s rough but a habit to want a drink. They do normally out grow it on their own. A bedtime snack won’t help either. Tho doesn’t hurt. Some kids just wake more. My son will son 2 3 sips of milk he’s out
