Giving Up The Bottle

“What Do I Look Like, Some Sort of Baby?”

  • Once your child has mastered drinking from a cup, gradually decrease the amount of liquids in the bottle.
  • Give bottles less frequently throughout the day, or if you choose, eliminate them totally.
  • Remove all bottles from the house.
  • Substitute the bottle with a toy.
  • Bring your child to a toy store, allowing a choice in toys.  Then bring the toy and  your child’s bottle to the cashier.  Have him pay for the toy with the bottle.
