  • ok I know this seems mean, but just throw it away.. tell you kid he or she is a big kid know. the child may cry, but not for long.. bottle is bad for 2 yr old teeth. give them a sippy cup & tell him its magical maybe that will help.

  • I know it's hard, but just toss it out. You'll be glad you did when the baby has no bottle rot on their teeth. Baby will have no choice but to use what you give when all bottles are out of the house.

  • its sounds right, throw that in the trash. he will cry and throw fits, but at this age there is absolutle no reason for him to have a bottle. get a sippy cup and he will just learn to drink out of it. if he is thirsty he will drink out of it.

  • Yup, going with everyone else on here, I just threw them away one day, offered him the soft spout sippy cup (nuby) and he took right to it. It's really the best way to go.
