  • tell them that no more bottle........big boys/girls use cups. It may be hard the first few nights. My oldest was horrible........I learned from my oldest and NEVER associated bottles with sleeping lol. Bottles were about 45 minutes before nap or bed. She was very very easy to bottle break.

  • I just took it away and said someone stole them! LOL No joke though and it worked. I had a little trouble at first for a day or so, but it went better than I thought it would.

  • I agree with the other moms, just take it away. I did that for my son at 15 months. He was fine with it. I just gave him a sippy cup. Now he's a little over 2 and doesn't drink anything right before bedtime.
