Well just a quick update for those of you who were kind enough to post here yesterday. Georgia went to bed last night without taking her milk with her, although she wasnt' keen on drinking it before and didn't have much of it. But the upshot was apart from taking her to the toilet at midnight I didn't get up all night with her she did waken a couple of times but settled herself back over quite easily. And this morning, not only was her cot dry, but her night time pants were dry too.

Feel really vindicated in my decision as although I knew it was the right thing to do it still felt a little cruel iykwim?!

Well done and stick with it

Not cruel: everybody - including your DD - benefit from a good night's sleep (and everybody is likely to be in a better mood )

You are a great parent: parenting is sometimes about making tough/unpopular decisions and you have done that.

Big ((hugs)) I didnt see this yesterday but I would have agreed that the wanting milk during the night would have been a comfort thing, like she had woken from a sleep cycle and thought she needed the milk and sucking to get back to sleep again.

Alex still has a sippy cup for milk (cow cup) but for before bed he had it in the living room and we then took him to bed awake. Since night potty training now though he has his "bed milk" at 3pm then drinks as normal untill 6pm and hes dry through the night.

Glad last night went much better, long may it continue!
