Throw every single one away. she cant have it if its not there. She may throw a fit, but she doesnt know whats best for her yet. Youre in charge.

Have you tried giving her a few sips from your glass. My daughter refuses to drink milk from anything but a bottle but she will drink from a sippy cup. When she was poorly she refused all fluids except for a few sipps of water from my glass. Buy some plastic cups and put about a centimeter of water in the bottom and guide her hand to mouth and see if she drinks. She will be so pleased that she is being a big girl she may wish to move straight onto a cup.

my suggestion would just throw them away....get them out of the house. If they are not in the house she does not have the choice of the bottle. Often times once out of sight out of mind they are fine. She may ask for it in the beginning, but letting her know that she is a big girl and big girls use sippies and not bottles. At first she may cry, but when she realizes that will not get her way she will be fine. I have found that often times kids do better than we think they will we just have to take the step and get rid of the bottles and not give in when they ask/cry for them during that transition stage.
