  • do the milk like you do the formula....formula goes bad after an hour, so does milk. like i said before, mix it.

  • Go with what I said in the other question about going cold turkey and also only give water at night. By her age she doesn't a night time feeding, but something to wet her palate. So give her water in a sippy cup. I never give juice or milk at night. Milk goes bad and juice will rot their teeth.

  • Are you giving her a bottle in her crib at night? That shouldn't be done either. That's why I'm asking. Just give her a bottle before bed...while you supervise her with it. There shouldn't be problems. As for the other stuff, go cold turkey. It might sound mean, but they'll get over it. :)

  • Another thing you can do is gradually move that last bottle earlier so it is not part of the bedtime routine. I think it's way easier to cut it out after it's not part of going to sleep. You can replace the bedtime bottle with a song or a story or just quiet cuddling.
