That is possible, I kept hearing the bedtime bottle is the hardest to get rid of, but one night I forgot it and she didn't care. I wish you luck!!

You could switch to a sippy cup or just not offer fluids at those times. Try foods that have a lot of water in them: grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries... etc. My daughter was weened off the bottle by 9 months and had no problems with it at all, we started the sippy cup at 4 months but for most of her fluids at 6 months were from her sippy. She liked Nuby brand, it is silicone and 'nipple' like and it has a valve to avoid spills.
