Okay so my daughter is 21 months old, and is always so excited when its time to go to bed. We have always laid her down with a bottle, I know you shouldn't but we do, anyways I've been trying to break her of the habbit recently and she isn't having it. She just screams bloody murder until you bring her a bottle. I've even tried letting her cry herself to sleep but after 30 mins of crying I can't listen to it anymore and try to go in her room and rub her back to put her to sleep, but if she knows im in the room she just wants to talk to me, so that doesnt work either. The only time she gets a bottle now is at bed time. Im pretty set on the fact that she is now attatched to her bottle, much like some kids get attatched to a blanket or pacifier, and i should have stopped this a long time ago. But since I didn't what do we do now? Any suggestions would be wonderful!
