If you haven't already, start cutting out bottles at meals and use the sippy cup as much as possible. I think it will be easier to give it up when you only use it once a day. With my twins I gradually cut out all bottles except for bedtime, and then I started moving that bottle earlier and earlier so it wasn't part of the bedtime routine. Then for a few days I took them out for a walk or to the store at bottle time (distraction), and conveniently came home at bedtime (too late for bottle). After about 3 evenings, I stopped taking them away from the house at bottle time. I only had one bad evening with one twin, and after that neither cried for Baabaa again.
