ONLY WATER when Night Weaning

In my post on night weaning I stated:

Grab some kind of bottle, sippie-cup, or thermos filled with your liquid of choice; water, almond milk, etc, and place this near the bed. You can offer this just in case they are waking for thirst.

Having just been to the pediatric dentist, I would now recommend ONLY WATER in the bottle or sippie-cup as you night-wean. I gave my second child a diluted juice bottle at night and we have just found decay. I gave my first child only a water bottle and she is fine. Of course there are a multitude of factors at work, but I would now say only WATER.

All the best,
