18mths girl keep drinking water before sleeep.

Postby shn » Fri May 08, 2009 12:58 am

Any commend on a toddler, 18mths old, drank a bottle 6oz of milk , then followed by another 4 oz of plain water before sleep. or else she cant sleep at all. I had tried to stop her from drinking by filling up just 2 oz of plain water ... BUT she ask for more. keep saying water water. she will make a fuss, getting cranky then keep asking for either milk or water. she even Burp up after that bottle of milk . BUT still asking for water.
The KK hospital nurse did said that dun feed a baby too much water, or rather advise dun give unnecessary, but what about toddler? Furthermore before sleep.?
HOW TO STOP???

My 2.5yo son has the habit of finishing milk, brush teeth and just when he dozing off will drink about 80ml of water. We leave his water bottle next to his bed, cos he has blocked nose frequently and would breathe thru his mouth, so he gets thirsty and wakes up in the middle of nite to drink.

What i can suggest is that you switch the nipple for drinking water to a slow flow, it may be the suckling of the teat that she likes.
