im after a bit of advice on when and how i should stop my little ones bottles.caitlins now 19 months and still has up to 3 full bottles of milk a day which im beginning to think is a bit to much as she barely eats a scrap of food.my eldest daughter just stopped wanting bottles herself at 9 months so never had to wean off bottles before.problem is she wont take milk from a cup at all just juice and screams for a bobo when she gets upset so is using it as a comforter
any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

I dunno how we did it but I've managed to swap alys afternoon bottle for a yogurt - she only gets a 4oz one at bedtime now.

she's very slowly learning to use her cup


caitlin will get there in her own time hunny

thanks ladies.the thing is we had managed to cut her down to just a bottle at night and then she had a cold and went right off food so think shes got used to using milk as a substitute (if you know what i mean)im going to keep trying with putting it in a cup saving bottles for bed.i still want her to drink milk just want her eating proper food as well

Offer her milk in a cup at snacktimes and only water with a meal! im sure the cold has knocked her off and she will be munching food before long

you could do the gradual watering down thing, though at that age if they're watching you do it it can be hard to get away with it, lol.
