Hi everyone I'm kinda New to this site & i need some advice please? My 2 1/2 year old son just won't stop drinking from his bottle 😩 he loves milk but he wants the bottle every where he go for example if we out side he will play for a period of time but when he gets bored he askes for the bottle ( I dislike hearing my baby cry so i feed in and give it to him) i kno i kno.... But he doesnt walk around with a bottle in his mouth every where he go i think he just like the feeling of the nipple because he will just have it in his mouth and barely drink it i just need someone that can understand and willing to give me some advice on what i can do ? Thank yu

You needed to get him onto a cup by the time he was a year or a bit older. By giving in you are allowing him to control things and you are the parent. I say toss all of the bottles out and give him sippy cups. He is going to have fits but once he learns that is all he has to drink from I can guarentee that he will drink something. He is going on three years old. He does not need a bottle anymore. He is also not a baby anymore either.
