    My boyfriend’s daughter is 4 and she refuses to go to sleep. She get juice or chocolate milk in her sippy cup. When should we cut if off so she can fall asleep?

    Many juices for children have a lot of sugar in them, so that definitely might be contributing to keeping her awake and chocolate has caffeine. It might be best to offer her only water for the 3 or 4 hours before bedtime to see if that makes a difference in her sleep schedule.

    I think switching to water only after dinner may be the way to go. The less sugar and caffeine before bed, the better. Give that a try and see if it makes a difference.
