  • Give it to her empty maybe she just likes the security of it once she figures out theres nothing in it she won't fill a need for it anymore

  • i tried the empty thing and my dd just screamed until i finally gave in and got her something to drink. im still working on it, but i put less and less drink in it every night, once its gone its gone and she doesnt get anymore. it seems to be working

  • let her pick a cup out and start using that at Bf, lunch etc but not bed time

  • It might take a little tough love but you will just have to take it away. Maybe tell her she can have a toy in bed instead of the cup. Change the bedtime routime, read a story, let her pick a book etc. I would let ours take the book to bed when we were finished reading, they are 5 and 6 and still slide the book under their pillow when I turn out the light.
