I have got my daughter off the bottle at bedtime but I am having an horrible time at naptime. Most of the time she will fight and sometimes I won't give in. But there is some days I am stressed to the max and she needs a nap and I will give in. I know she needs off of it, so is there a trick to this?

I still give her a sippy at nap and bedtime. At night i give milk till she is asleep, then i swap it out for water. I dont think i am going to give it up, even though some think its not good. I know I still wake up at night needing a drink, so i dont see why i should take that from her. It saves me having to get up in the middle of the night to get one for her. But thats just me...

Monica, I am curious to the strategies you used to get your daughter off nighttime bottle. I'm going through the same thing w/ my 1-year-old daughter. My 2nd baby is due in Nov. & I would LOVE if she were off by then (wishful thinking?)

I threw out the bottles. Now I give a sippy cup of milk if I HAVE to. I guess some would argue it's the same thing...
