Quoting Natasha:



i had this problem with my son, he wouldnt take a dummy he would scream for a bottle. i spoke to my doctor about this and was advised to give cereal half hour before bed to help fill him up ready for a full nights sleep. i tried this and for the first couple of days he still woke up but was taking his dummy instead of asking for his bottle then he stopped waking altogether i did this until he was 18 months he's now 2 and is a perfect sleeper good luck






i did this as well... its a great idea... unfourtantly for me my son is a BIG eater ALWAYS hungry..... it didn''t work he would still wake up.... i think with mineits more habit...i'm still having a problem with him sleeping all night..  i have started the cryin it out and boy is it hard.. but its starting to work after three weeks... my son is very stubborn and wants things his way... i hope yours is a lot less stubborn

my son had the same problem... i started giving him water i didn't decrease the amount of milk...

I'd like to say that at this age it's become a habit rather than necessity. A gentle solution would be to slowly decrease the amount you give in the bottle. Once you get down to only giving an ounce change it to water. You could also try offering a sippy cup insted of the bottle and that would stop them using it as a pacifier.
