  • It sounds more like he still needs a little filler in his tummy to get through the night. Have you tried just giving him some milk (or whatever) in a sippy before he goes to bed?

    Just a thought.....

  • You could try having a sippy cup of milk before bed and then when you put him down, let him have a sippy cup of water. If he's really thirsty he'll drink the water and if he still feels more comfortable fallilng asleep drinking something you don't have to worry about it harming his teeth.

  • Only offer him water in his *bottle.. I have been going through the same thing... only my daughter is 3 years old, and that has worked for me! She doesn't want just water in her *sippy, she wants the milk, and if I give her water in the sippy she just throws it,... and doesn't want the sippy ne more because she no longer recieves milk in it! She is doing just fine! Good luck!

  • hey everyone i'm getting ready to start weaning my daugther off the bottes. she is 13 months but she is way behind for her age. she has the development of a 6-8 month old but she has to get off bottles to help her ears. So this weekend maybe full of screaming and crying, then after i'm done we will see how she is. please wish me luck thanks

  • I gradually started her on sippy cups. But she was off the bottle by 13 months.
