  • Give a sippy cup....get the bottles out of the house!! lol it will only take a day or two, but s/he will not miss it.

  • I dreaded taking my son's bottle away because I thought he would just have the worst time with it, so I put it off way too long. When I finally did take it away, it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I didn't give him a cup or anything. He asked for his bottle for about a week, but he only cried the first day (and he would stop crying as soon as I closed his door, so it wasn't like it went on and on!).

  • I do the sippy of water to replace the bottle. I am having difficulties taking the cup away to nighttime potty train my 3 yr old now. I guess I will wait a couple of months

  • My daughter is a year and two weeks and still uses her bottle at nap/bedtimes. I was lucky in the fact that my daughter never became attached to her bottle to where she wanted it at other times then feedings.

    For a few months I could get her to go to sleep on her own but she's recently decided that that's not how she wants to do things anymore! (go figure) So for now she just takes her bottle at nap and bedtime.
