  • ok well I've heard that you can start gradually watering down her bottles until they're just water, then wean out the bottles. you could also try pacifiers GL

  • UGH. Well most moms will tell you that the bottle should have never made it into her bed, BUT since your already past that point. I would gradually stop giving her refills. Since she is use to goig to bed w/ a bottle I would give it to her than, but after that Id let her cry it out. Shes obviously is using her bottle as a soother- maybe try turning on a classical cd & let her cry it out. :) I dont think watering the bottles down would hurt- milk formula is soooooooo bad for her teeth!

  • After you brush her teeth at night, she should only have water.

  • i think it actually is normal for a baby that age to wake frequently. my son did until he was one and a half. i don't know about the bottle, though, because i breastfed. i do think with bottles the milk can pool in their mouth and cause tooth problems, but i really don't know. there is a book called "the no cry sleep solution" that might have some ideas for you. good luck!!!!!
