My daughter only gets her bottle at bedtime. She drinks a cup of milk and then she gets water in her bottle but I still have not been able to get the bottle away from her at bedtime, unless I put her in the car and take a ride and she goes to sleep that way but I don't want to have to do that everynight. She has never taken a paci and she won't go to sleep with her sippy. I'm not sure what else to do. Anyone have any ideas?

There is nothing wrong with a bottle of water at bedtime. She doesn't need to drink the cup of milk. Milk is constipating, causes digestive problems, is linked to obesity and other health problems. Kids usually get the 2 toddler size servings of milk recommended in the foods they eat. Milk right before bed can be bad for the teeth before bed. If you want to continue with the milk you should brush her teeth after the milk.
It's normal for a child to breastfeed until they are 3 or older. Children have that sucking need especially to fall asleep. It's normal for her to want to suck to sleep.
