My son will turn two in two days and he still takes a bottle. Only at nap and bedtime. (I know! They should have been gone a long time ago!) But he will seriously NOT go to bed without them.

Any advice? I was hoping to just throw them away and be done with them. Lol. I was so happy he didn't take to the pacifier but here he is glued to the bottle.

Smh..

Um, there are tons of sippy cups out there?  Seems like the obvious answer to me but maybe I'm not understanding something.  Best of luck.

He drinks a sippy cup throughout the day. I tried giving him that instead of the bottle at nap/bed times. That did not work..

I'm in the same boat as well! My son is 18 months and will only drink milk out of a bottle. Which he gets when he wakes up or before he goes to sleep.

Try to figure out a way to transition him to sippy cups. What do you usually put in his bottle at bed /nap time?

 It does if you get rid of all the bottles away and leave no other option.  Is he the parent or you?

Give yourself a timetable, maybe a week.

Make a poster of the week.

The last day is the big boy day, when he is not on a bottle anymore.

Buy something special for each day of the week, like sippy cups, a small toy, etc.

Tell him this is his special week when he is becoming a big boy without a bottle.  Mark off each of the days with a cross on the calendar and a little gift.

Last day, it's a throw away the bottles party and replacement with a couple of special sippy cups and maybe a cupcake and candle to blow out to celebrate being a big boy.

And done.
