How old. You could limit the times they have it. Like only at night then slowly get rid of them. That's how did it.

Sorry. I Should have clarified. He drinks out of sippy cups except he drinks a bottle while I rock him to sleep... So I'm trying to break that

I only offered the cup after he found the one he liked. So, technically i made him quit cold turkey. If yours is still attached, try only giving him just water in the bottle and ' the good stuff' in the cup. He should catch on unless he likes water lol

For my daughter I did cold turkey. Tried the same for my son, but he wasn't having it. Instead I started by just giving him only one at nighttime and then ater two days I threw out all the bottles. So, no more formula, no more bottle. Now he drinks a sippy cup with warm whole milk. Tada! Every kid is different. Pick whatever you think is best and you can always change it if it isn't working.

I slowly cut them back, down to one at night....then just transitioned from a bottle to milk in a cup at night....
