At 2yrs old we asked our daughter to get rid of her bottles and she refused (because of the new baby in the home). Soo we motivated her. We told her to go into the cupboards and collect all her bottles, nipples, bottle brush etc. Then we asked her to be a big girl and throw everything into the garbage. She was hesitant and we knew she would be. So we had a reward waiting for her. A brand new Dora DVD. She quickly threw her bottles into the trash, asked for a cup of juice and put her DVD on. Worked like a charm! Best of luck to you.

I just took them away from my boys by the time they were one. It might cause some problems at first, but just remember you are doing the right thing.

Just throw the bottles away!! She will get used to it. You will have a few rough days, but be firm and stick to your guns!! This is what we had to do with pacifiers and bottles, it is tough but you can do it. Good Luck :)
