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

Throw all bottles out. Really at 2 1/2 yrs. you should be working on regular cup....bottles should have been gone a long time ago. Throw them ALL out, so you can't give in!

Put water in the bottles and save milk for sit down meals w/ a cup. If you keep giving in he's going to keep freaking out to get what he wants. He can have the bottle all he wants w/ water in it... or he can choose to not have the bottle.
