Q.

night feeding

I just read somewhere that it is wrong to give a toddler juice at night. my son in 15 months. we stopped giving him milk when his stomach cramps/wind would not stop and soy milk was making him constipated.he drinks juice and water during the day.he still wakes up in the middle of the night and wants a bottle. we give him the same juice and/or water. is this wrong?

Water is alright, but the juice may harm his teeth.
