2yr old boy/need help

Can you please advice me Doc, my baby is 2yrs he do not drink bottle anymore except for juice in a sippy cup, he do not want milk only in porridge. But my problem is I do not want him to have juice during course of the night but he will wake 3/4 times at night to have juice which result in changing nappies twice at night. He do eat well during the day and sometimes do not want to eat at night. I am desperate for any advise, I am a working mom and is very tired during the day because of the waking up every now and then.

You must not give your 2 year old any juice at night. In any case this is extremely bad for his teeth.This habit has to be stopped as soon as possible. You will most probably have to go through the 'controlled crying method'. It is not going to be easy but should work if you are firm about it. You will find information about this method on our website or on Google.
