Tips on Removing the Bottle

– Let them swap out the bottle for a new toy

– Let them pick out their own sippy cup

– Give them a regular cup like Mommy and Daddy

– Offer milk in a cup instead of a bottle

– Gradually replace each bottle with a cup, only replacing one bottle a week, until all bottles are sippy cup

– Leave the nighttime bottle to last to replace

-Offer praise and encouragement when they drink out of a sippy

-Mix half milk, half water, gradually adding more water until it is only water in the bottle.
