Plain and simple, just get rid of it. It will take about 2 nights for her to get used to not having it. She WILL cry but she will be ok. It's actually harder for us than it is for them.
GOOD LUCK. Remember: DON'T GIVE IN

For my son he is not even a year. But the sippy cups with the soft tops seem to work better for him. Its worth a try.

If it has gone to the point where she throws a fit at night for a bottle then I think you should just get rid of it. No more bottle, there is only the sippy cup. If she goes without drinking from the sippycup becuase she refuses it thats ok. She will not die and if she cries herself to sleep thats ok too. My little girl is just over a year old and had no problem switching. But it varies with all children. If I were you I would just pretend you no longer have any bottles.
