My 2 yr old son still takes a bottle of milk that has to be warmed up, and he then he drinks it before he goes to bed at night. I would like to wean him off the bottle completely, but am at a loss on how to make the conversion. I've tried quitting cold turkey and just putting him to bed without anything, but he cries endlessly. Any hints, suggestions, advice, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

I would try giving him a sippy cup of milk instead of the bottle. As long as his belly is full when he goes to bed with milk like he is used to them he should be content and it shouldn't matter if he got it in the bottle or the sippy cup. Then you could gradually cut down the amount you give him in the sippy cup to wean him off from it all together so he doesn't wet to bed.

That's just my thoughts, maybe others have some thoughts too.
