Still wake up prepaing milk for my toddler.....

I remember I did post this topic quite sometimes ago, that I'm happy that Iz has already stop asking for milk at night. Who know, immediately after I post this 'happy' post, within a week (immediately after I back from outstation), he is asking for night milk milk again.

All thanks to my darling Dadi.

Initially, Iz has stop drinking night milk milk when he is around 11 or 12 mths old. But, after a while, he fall sick and you know, when kid fall sick, they tend to lost some weight, and darling Dadi, pity on him, and at night (just purposely do it when I'm away - oversea business trip), he wake up and mix milk for Iz.

And, from that day onward, Iz just started asking for milk milk at night and there you go, Gone all my sweet dream!! To make it worst, he only will ask for night milk milk, when his mommy is around, and when I was away, he dare not ask or never wake up at night asking his daddy or grandma to make milk milk for him!!!
(When I complain to Dadi, he will always say, "When you out, he can sleep till morning without asking milk milk lor......or, he will say "I want to make nen nen for him, but, then, when he ask, I can't hear lor....too deep sleep **slap my forehead**)


So, you say ler.....he 'bully' his mommy or 'over sayang' his mommy??! Sometimes, in one night, he can force me to wake up at least twice: 1am and 5 ~ 6am. If I asked him like "Can you finished the milk or not?" And, when he finished the milk, he will say it half asleep, "Nah, you see, I can finished the milk one"....and immediately pop back to sleep soundly till 7 plus. And, poor Momi, can't sleep back if it is around 6 plus, cause I have to wake up and prepare myself to go to work liao.

If I don't mix milk for him when he request it, he will keep asking asking in gentle way till I give in......He will pat pat me softly and say "Mommy, I want nen nen"....and once he done with the milk, sometimes, he will immediately hug me to sleep like his bolster (something as token of appreciation to me)

You said, should I firm rejected his request to train him from having milk milk at night or I can still give in till he is a bit older? Do you have way to do it? I plan to train him to be diaperless soon.

hmm..how old is he?

is it just the addiction of milk? I would suggest that to be firm to his request since he can do it when he was around 11-12mths old.

he asks milk just from u bcuz he may be wanting ur attention :)

Maybe train him to have his milk before he sleeps. When he wakes you up to request for milk, tell him that the milk bottles are sleeping. Have to wait till morning for them to wake up....create some stories.

its the growth spurt perhaps. my girl also will ask for milk once in a while. so i bring extra bottle upstairs, just in case.

I trained my girls to drink nen nen before sleeping time, I "warned" them that they should not wake muummy up because when mummy don't sleep well, mummy will turn into a moody zombie mummy.... that's work pretty well except there are nights they will walk over to our room, wake me up and just want to inform me that they are going to "wee wee"..... apaler..
