Question for you ladies. How many of you still offer bedtime milk separate from dinner time? Either in a bottle or sippy cup?
We are in the process of switching his last bottle to a sippy, but I am a little unsure how to plan out the end of his day. Currently, he wakes up and has a sippy of milk, about 30 minutes later he has breakfast with water. After his nap he has a sippy of milk, about 30 minutes later lunch with water. Dinner is usually around 5:30ish with water, then we do his bedtime routine (bath, story, jammies), and lastly he has a bottle of milk, then off to bed.
I'm wondering should I give that last sippy of milk separate as a final send off to bed like we are doing now, or give it to him with dinner and let him drink and hope he drinks it. Problem is, when I offer the milk sippy with food he typically won't drink it. I am also nervous that he senses that last "bottle" as his signal that it's time for bed and sleep.
Just curious how you have all handled it, thanks!
It would be really nice to just do jamimies, story and then off to bed (especially when we have a sitter because he will typically refuse the bottle completely from anyone but us!).
