My son is 10 mo. old. He absolutely needs a bottle to fall asleep at nap time and at bedtime. I have tried sippy cups.. he uses a sippy cup all day long EXCEPT in bed. He HAS to have his bottle to fall asleep. I fill it with water to avoid tooth decay but he has to have it to fall asleep. He does not use a binky and that is not an option to me. I need help breaking him from the bottle in bed, and having him go to sleep on his own when he is tired. I have tried standing next to his bed and rubbing his head..nope. I have tried bottle before he lays down...nope. I have even tried rocking him to sleep...nope. He HAS to have a bottle in bed to sleep. please HELP me. lol I have tried giving him a sippy in bed with water and shutting the door and he will sit there and scream uncontrollably for 20 min until I go in there and give him a bottle.
