Water the milk down, slowly until it is just water and no milk. I did this in my daughters bottles and it worked really well. Good luck.

I am taking my daughters away and we have water in it at night right now, but i fond it easier to start taking it from her nap and once that is done taking it at night. I guess it only works if they have a cup at map to

Maybe try giving her the milk before she goes to bed rather then let her take it to bed and if she wakes at night try feeding her water rather then milk. My suggestion would be not to give it to her in bed, bring her out to the lounge and then take her back to bed when she's done. You might have a few sleepless nights and a bit of protest screaming from your daughter but after a while she will get the idea. Good luck with it :)

We just said that if they wanted to have something to drink at night while going to bed it's water. We started this a week a go my 3.5 year will refuse it so he now goes to bed without a sippy cup. He rather have milk then water but our 2.5 year old will drink the water. Good luck!
