I wish I could help, but mine is still on a bottle all the time in addition to her solids. she was a preemie and at 16 months still only weighs 18lbs so the ped isnt rushing things yet.

I had to do the tough love for my boy. When they get thirsty they will drink from what is available. My son doesn't take a cup to nap or bed very often. If he gets one it is only filled with water. Good Luck.

i agree with grand ma, whats the big rush to give up the bottle, come on they are only

16 months old, l have decided to still give my son his bottle at night, its comfort and it really helps him to sleep. why are we such in a rush to take things away from our kids that give them comfort in this big strange new world.

I've started filling it with warm water. He's soon gets bored. It's working for me, hopefully it does for you

That is exactly what I had to do with my son. He "needed" his bottle at naps and night time. Finally I said enough is enough. Washed my last bottle and put them out of sight. The first day with no bottles was really hard at nap and night time, but it got easier and easier. By the 4th day, he didn't miss the bottle at all.
