No more bottle=no more milk:(

I need help! My 18 month old refuses to drink milk from anything but a bottle. So we decided to take her bottle away a week ago( she was only having it at bedtime) we did it cold turkey and it's been ok. She does ask for it but she is sleeping without it, the biggest problem is I can't get her to drink milk at all now, I have a variety if sippy cups, regular cups , cups with straws and she gives it right back to me saying no. I even try to out chocolate or strawberry milk in with the homo but she isn't interested. Any suggestions?

Was she drinking from the sippy cup before you took the bottle away? If she was drinking from the sippy during the day before you took the bottle away then you know she can do it, she is just choosing not to. If that is the case I would only offer milk no other liquids. Once she realizes that she is only getting milk and only in the sippy then she will start drinking....if she is a strong willed girl it may take longer as her will will hold her out a bit longer. :)
