I had, and sometimes still have, the same problem with my three year old. We give her the option of a sippie cup with water (no milk though she sometimes asks for it) or nothing at all. She takes the sippie cup at night now with water. I think for her it is more of a security blanket b/c sometimes she doesn't even drink it. Good luck and I hope that helps.

Well, 1 thing you could try...put less & less in the bottle gradually. It might help get her off of it if there's really nothing in there. If she still wants a drink at could always try giving her a sippy cup to go to bed with. If you get the spill proof ones, you won't have any trouble with them spilling. I hope this helps hun! Best of luck!
