  • The longer a child has something (e.g. a bottle, or pacifier) the more dependant they are on those items. You should work on finding a routine that doesn't involve a cup or bottle to put him to sleep.

  • Once he's asleep try to go in a remove it. try replacing it with a bear or fav toy even, so he won't wake and look for it. I have the same prob with my daughter. Best of luck!

  • We had the same issue with my daughter and as much as I hate to say it... my husband and his theory to let her cry actually worked. It took a few nights of me fighting the urge to give it to her but after 2 nights she didn't need it anymore
