Bottle weaning

I need some advice on bottle weaning my 16 month old. He gets a bottle before his nap and before bed and when he wakes in the night which sometimes is once, twice or not at all. I breastfeed him as well but if I wake with him at night I still do a bottle. One of my friends once gave her child just water when they woke at night and they started sleeping through the night?

Give only water at night. Then start by replacing the daytime bottles with sippy cup. His liquid intake will go down as you transition, but don't worry it will go back up some. Also after age 12 months they only need 12 to 16 ounces of milk a day.
