I am having trouble getting my 2.5 year old son to quit his night time milk bottle.
He uses that as his sleep aid and if he wakes up during the night he wants a refill so he can go back to sleep.
My son does the same thing and he is 3.5 years old. Thinking of giving him either a sippy cup or just stopping it altogether. Not sure which would be best.
i stopped cold turkey but you have to be patient.
I'm still pregnant so i haven't experienced this yet but my mom told us that is we wanted a certain thing we had to give up the bottle as a trade. I gave it up to get an early birthday present.. idk if it will work for you but its just a thought.
We stopped bottles cold turkey. It took a few days but my son got used to it pretty quickly. The longer you wait the harder it will be to wean baby. He's not sleeping so well right now but even when he wakes I only offer him water. Most nights he sleeps through until recently. I use Nuby sippy cups which I love. They're the best ones we have. We bought like 8 or 9 of them. They go from bottle to sippy which makes for super easy transition. But the longer you wait the harder it will be to wean him. I never put him to bed with a bottle or sippy. He gets 8 oz of milk right before his bath and then sippy goes downstairs with daddy.
thanks all. I am going to try giving him milk in a cup before bath time and see how that goes. will keep you updated.
