The only problem per se with this is her teeth. If she stays in the routine of wanting this bottle before bedtime, her baby teeth will start to decay and she will get cavities. One idea to try would be to "water down" the milk a little more each night until its only water and not milk so that its not as big of a deal. She may not like it as much but it's better for her teeth due to the natural sugars and acids in milk. If she likes the security of having it to hold, then she may not mind the water as much as you might think. Make sure it's cool but not too cold so the bottle doesn't "sweat" as she might not like that either. Good luck!!
