what are some ways to get my 15mo off the bottle if to avoid the sleepless nights if a sippy cup isn't working?

Your child really does not need a drink during the night after the age of 1. Make sure he has a snack before bed and a drink and then that is it for the night. It really is not a good idea to continue to give a drink in the night because when you come to potty training him you will have no chance of a dry night time nappy if he is taking in fluid during the night. Unless you are living in a place of extreme heat I would not give a bottle during the night. I know this means a few nights of broken sleep to wean him off the bottle but it will be worth it in the long run.
