I have a 22 month old that has just been taken off the pacifer a couple of weeks ago. She had a couple rough nights and then been fine since. She still has a bottle at bed time and nap time though. She drinks fine out of sippy cup during the day and has since 6 months of age, but I've still given her the bottle at bedtimes. I am now wondering when to take away giving her something at bedtimes and what might be the best way to do it. I've been told just to give her water in the bottle until she doesn't want it anymore and I've been told to just go cold turkey and listen to her cry for a while - she'll eventually get tired and stop. Some have told me to just give her a sippy cup then too, but I don't want her having to drink anything in order to go to bed. So, I'm looking for any opinions you all might have out there. I want to move her to a toddler bed by 2 years and to not have her needing anything at bedtime by then also. Thanks!
