  • Throw it away, plain and simple.

  • Agreed. There is no reason for a 2 year old to have a bottle. Throw it away.

  • Gid rid of the bottles. Buy her special cup, have her help pick it out. There maybe a day or 2 of crying and fussing about it but thats okay. she will live, and it wont hurt her her one bit.

  • my 15 month old wouldnt sleep without her bottle until i just kept giving her a sippy cup over and over no more bottle. She was thirsty so she just ended up drinking out of the cup.

  • Its seems cruel but there all right. Bottles are one of those things that you just throw them away give them a sippy cup and unfortunatly let her cry it out. One or two nights of this and it will get old. I know it breaks your heart. My one little cousin literally used sit in front of the fridge and just cry for baba moo... for hours.

  • 2 years old? holy crap! Try the Nuk orthodontic cup, it has a soft spout which can help them transition easier. if that doesnt work im with the other ladies, throw it away.
