How do I break it??

My baby is almost 2, she has broke herself from the bottle during the day but at night well is a different story. If I try to not give it to her she cries all night literally. Everyone says she is to old for her beloved "baba" but i dont want my poor baby crying either. how do I break the habit the easiest and nicest way possible?

  • I broke my son from that habit about three months ago he is also two. Everytime he woke up asking for it I would tell him his sippy cup went bye bye. He would cry and eventually go back to sleep. I did this for like three night and ever since I haven't had a problem with it. GL

  • let her have it. Mine is 2 in march and still get a bottle at night. I wait until they are 2 1/2 before taking the night time bottle the way i do it is to just put less and less in it at night. For a few days it is a 6 oz instead of 8 then 4 then 2 then by then they are ready to give it up

  • Google bottle rot mouth, grow up and parent ur child. Take away things he's too old for. You should start potty training soon and u don't want ur kid peeing the bed.
