Hi, My son just turned 1 and still takes a bottle before bed.

I know he doesn't NEED it, but it's such a routine, that he knows after his bath he gets it.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a new routine that might not be such a huge change?

No more bottle!!! And he won't even take a cup. The transition was MUCH easier then i anticipated.

We starting giving our son his bottle 15 earlier every other day, until we reached an hour before bedtime. And you're right, they don't need that bedtime bottle. When we decided to get rid of the bed time bottle, which was just about a week ago, we switched out his bottle with a sippy cup. He took about 1/2 the cup, but still slept fine. Hope this helps. Good luck!
