When to stop bottle
My son is 19 months old. He only gets a bottle when he goes to bed and it's water, not milk. Is there a certain time or age that I should stop the bottle at bedtime and if so just put him to bed with nothing or a sippy up?
i would say it's time to stop
I took my older daughter off the bottle at age 1. I think it is time to try and take him off of it. Or try and start weaning him off.
About a year and no longer than 18 months should your baby/toddler be on the bottle. The bottle is a great comfort source for babies, but slowly replacing the bottle with a sippy cup is best. Find other comfort sources for him. Get books from your local library about big kids don't need bottles now. Talk to him about no more bottles at bedtime. Keep him busy busy busy all day with lots of physical activities. By the time bath and bedtime come, he should be too tire to care about the bottle. Good luck.
So instead of a bottle at night which is the only time he gets it give him a sippy cup instead?
I don't know much about parenting but my kid is about as old as yours and I give him a sippy cup with water in it. And leave him in there he hardly ever drinks it but sometimes it's empty so he does get thirsty sometimes
Keep introducing the sippy cup more often.
Thanks ladies. He used his sippy cup for 2 nights and now he sleeps on his own without it.
