I would ask his ped. if they have any concerns about his mouth. Is he talking, drooling a lot and gagging? My son is involved with a speech pathologist and I have found that help dosent mean anything is wrong it just rules out the what ifs

well my son is almost twenty months old and I began by slowly dropping two ounces each week(unless he was miserable and I knew he needed that comfort of a full one) and increased how much milk he got out of his sippy cup for dinner. pretty soon he just stopped wanting it so I began a new night time routine that did not include his bottle. he whines still but this is only night number three for him. They also make sippys that look like bu-ba's........good luck

I am in the same predicament. My child is 23 months old. I couldn't wean him at 1 because he did not like eating solid foods. He only now eats purees. I have worked with a food therapist and dietitian and have decreased his bottles to 2 per day. This has helped him eat more solids. He HATES drinking milk from a cup. I think Sarah's post (below) is the route we are going to take very soon. It's really hard. I hope it works.

I would say to just throw away the bottles. You will have a few days of crying and whining and she may drink less for a few days, but once she realizes that the bottle is not coming back she will stop the crying/whining and start drinking more.
