    Do people wake up in the middle of the night and drink a whole bottle of water? Am I missing something?

    I’m usually like “don’t want to be warm under the covers and need to pee, I don’t dare hydrate past 9 pm”

      Most nights not a whole bottle, but sometimes (or more!)

      I sweat a lot some nights, which gives me a thirst, but in winter even when I don’t sweat my place is so bone dry I wake up throughout the night with terribly dry throat, so sometimes I’ll even go through 2 16 oz bottles.

      I’d rather have to pee than not have the water nearby.

        Ok now I want to know where people live, if they have AC, what temperature their bedrooms are and how it effects their night water habits.

        I’ve never tried keeping water by my bed at night, and chugging if I wake up in the middle of it now I’m night bottle curious 🤔

        Like, will I feel magically hydrated and limber in the morning? Just another thing that I add to my routine to make me feel great in the morning?

        I’ll update if I piss the bed.

      I don’t but I feel weird not having water by the bed, just in case. I’ve been doing it so long I don’t even question it. Like I barely ever drink water in bed, so I could easily skip it

      Yeah all the time, I usually drink about half of my water bottle at night. I don’t even remember it most times.

      Lol, and here I was thinking this was about a hot water bottle, a thing that makes sense to bring to bed (and which I, a chronic pain sufferer must have at all times), not a drinking water bottle, which I think only the young with their still-strong bladders can consider a reasonable thing to bring to bed 😂
