Honestly if you really want to get rid of it, I would do it cold turkey. Tell her that you are going to leave the bottle for the "bottle fairy". When the bottle fairy comes to take the bottles away she'll leave you with a sweet surprise. Tell her the bottle fairy brings the bottles to babies who need them. In its place buy her a special sippy cup or toy.


I tried to break my kids of the bedtime bottle as soon as I could. My oldest cut it out on her own (she was an easy baby.. not so easy toddler) and my youngest I just decided to let her cry it out a night or two and then she was over it. I also switched them from bottle to sippy cup when they were a year old and they had no problems with that either.
