My baby is 22 months old. she often wakeup in night and asks for milk.. nearly more than half a litre of milk she is consuming a day. both mine and her sleep is getting disturbed. pls give me a solution.

If a child is eating well for dinner night feeding is not required. Also it will cause cavities and caries as milk left in the mouth can damage the teeth. The only solution is refusing and being prepared that there will be a tantrum and a lot of crying. However over a few days she will realise it. Also talk to her during the day about how it is better to not drink milk in the night. Even breast milk at this age can cause dental issues.

hi prema g , in order to have proper night sleep . make sure your baby has a day filled with enough feeding and play time so she does not need feeding at night. night feeding has become her habit rather than necessity she can go without it . be consistent in your change of plan and she will follow your lead .

Sometimes they r nt hungry,They just check prsence.. Try making her sleep in other way for fw days..After that c vl leave all this and c vl sleep properly..

pls exclude excessive milk at night....first it will disturb sleep and secondly she will wet bed. Her tooth too will get cavities. feed her dinner early and give milk before sleeping. do brush teeth. I have too be patient and a little form in not giving milk at night. give little water instead
