baby uses bottle as comforter at nite

hi if you have read my last thread you will know my lil girl is not an average one year old x she is a good baby x but i am afraid i have got her into a bad habbit , she is nearly 13 month and still wakes around 3-6 times in the night she sleeps in her cot all night which is good but when she wakes i give her a bottle and she will go back to sleep with it x
she is still in my room at the moment due to gettin her room sorted so i never leave her unatended with a bottle but its still tiring x
she has a good bedtime routine now which me and my boyfriend have enforced she has tea with us at about 5.30 ish x play for wile then we take her up at seven play on bed then bath and then bed at 8 x she will go in her cot and have a bottle and fall sleep x but she is still wakin up lots during the night x if anyone has any advice that would help or i could try it would be great x x thank you x

hi gem
i read your last post and just spotted this one
have you tried a dummy or special blanky to take the focus of the bottle .
might work might not as ive had no experience with this i dont know but its worth a shot to help you get some sleep.
good luck

i would imagine it would get better as she is weaned off milk i can imagine how tired you are our four month old son refuses to sleep on his own in his own bed so he sleeps beside me being cuddled most nights but we are starting to fix that now .
i really do hope your little one sleeps better soon .
keep me posted and good luck again

Re: baby uses bottle as comforter at nite

As long as the bottle doesn't have milk or juice it will not cause tooth decay and if you are in the room with her just give her water in a bottle and listen closely to make sure she doesn't choke. We did this with my son and he weaned himself off of it because he didn't want the water anymore. He never threw fits about it though. Good luck!

Re: baby uses bottle as comforter at nite

We have the same problem. Ds is 16 months old, I know I know, way too old, lol. The main reason i havent' quit giving him the bottle is because he is so hard to get to eat, and I know that at least he is getting milk! But he gets up about three times every night. It's horribly annoying. And he does sleep with me, but that doesn't bother me. LesleyKey, maybe I am dumb, but what do the X's mean?

mia had alot of problems from birth so is on high calorie milk so im a little nervous to wean her off it at nite yet x xi mite start trin her with boiled water and see if its the bottle as a comforter she wants or the milk x x
i think some times you do what is best for you to be able to get some sleep as long as baby is safe and well x she never uses it in day as a comforter so thats not an issue x i just kinda want a full nites sleep ha ha maybe im just bein picky x x good luck wit your lil one x love gem x x
