Sarah got this spot on. The only other thing I would suggest is maybe giving her a cup with a leak proof lid with water in it. It's not easy so be prepared for few rough nights.
Don't worry too much about the diapers those will take a bit longer.

I am assuming you meant 28 months old. For night bottle you can go cold turkey or put water in bottle and slowly decrease the amount over time. Either one you may have resistance from her but you do really need to stick to your guns on this one as milk in a bottle at night is really bad on her teeth at her age.

As for night time diaper.....that may take awhile before she is ready for no diaper at night. Focus on no bottle first and then go from there.
