My youngest is soon to be 1. My oldest is freshly 2. My problem with the older is the bottle. He still takes a 4oz bottle of water to nap and bed. We tried on 2 ocassions, one being very recent to take the bottle and use a cup. When he physically almost harmed himself by throwing himself off my bed in the middle of the night in a tantrum (the 3rd night) I said forget this and caved. Now I don't want it to be such a soothing crutch for the baby. I only give him a bottle in his room before sleep and lay him down while he is still awake. I am also not going to give the bottle to him while he is laying in there as we did with the first. What are some things some of you ladies did when the bottle was taken, or how did your baby "learn" to go to sleep once it was time for the bottle to be done. I hope this all made sense! Thanks!!
