how many ounces are in each bottle? i would limit the amount of milk he takes in. at his age, he should only be having 2 cups of whole milk a day. and he should not have a bottle anymore. the bottle is probably comforting to him, and so he drinks way more than he should. not to mention the other reasons bottles shouldn't be used at this age: tooth decay, jaw development, lack of nutrition due to too much milk, increased risk of ear infections, etc.. have you tried switching to a sippy cup?
