honestly... i just let my son cry when he went thru that at like 10 months. sometimes you have to. if it gets to be too much go in and give her a few sips. then let her know shes a big girl now and she doesnt need a sippy to sleep with.

the only way this works is cold turkey. it will be a few night of pure hell, but worth it in the end. if u think she is really thirsty offer water, but only a small amount. it worked for my 2 youngest girls!!

all i did was take away the bottle... you may have to endure some crying but after a few nights they will forget all about it. I didnt get my daughter off of the bottle/milk til she was 20months and didnt have any problems. now she doesnt want n e thing to do with it. just make sure you give her some milk during the day i give her some in the morning afternoon and b4 bed but i dont give her the bottle. its always in a cup and then i put her to bed w/o anything
