My son will be 2 in August and we need to get him off the bottle! He is still on formula because he had a reaction to milk and the pediatrician said to just stay on soy formula til he was 2. I need some advice on what I can do to take the bottle away. Our current routine is we ask if he is ready for night night and he says yes, walks to him room, gets in the rocker and then I come in with the bottle and rock him til he is done then lay him down. Tonight I tried putting the formula in a sippy cup and sitting on the couch with the lights off with him...no dice! Then I tried rocking him with it...nope! Finally I caved (which I know is where I went wrong) and gave him a bottle, he drank it and layed right down. HELP!
