My little guy (19 mos) is still drinking a bottle 3 times a day. He has one in the am when he gets up and one before his nap and one at bedtime. I let him stay on the bottle so long because he was such a terrible eater at around a year, that I was glad that he would at least drink the darn milk. Now he is eating a little better and I know it is time to get rid of the bottle. I am thinking of going cold turkey versus going slowly, but I am open to ideas! So far if I offer him his milk in a sippy cup he takes a few sips and then just sets it down. But I am thinking if there are no other alternatives (no bottles left in the cupboard) then he may get the idea. Any one else have any ideas? Thanks!
