Hi moms. I have a 2yr old and im tryong to get him off the bottle. I thought he was ready bec he was pushing it away but when sleeping time comes and the middle of the night.... he would cry for it and of course I give in. He drinks everything else in a sippy cup or bottled water or a regular cup..... When it comes to his milk.... only in bottle.... pls help. Thank you so much....

You are going to have to stay strong. For the next week or so only offer milk and only from a cup. Right now it is a choice and developmentally her should have been off the bottle by 1 yr. At night before bed and in the middle of the it should be water ONLY. My suggestion to you is to throw all the bottles away. You can't give in if you don't have it to give. It won't take soon as he realizes you are not going to give in it won't take long. Right now he knows you will give in so he continues to cry for it.
