My 3yo dd still loves to go to sleep of a night time with a bottle which, ashamedly I've let go on a bit long now! But it was easy to have her go to bed with a bottle (and stay quiet) while I got used to having another bub to feed and settle etc....But how do you get rid of something they are so partial to??
I took her out shopping today and I had her choose her own special cup and explained to her that she might like to drink her milk from this instead of a bottle because she's such a big girl now etc and she seemed quite happy with this idea.
She drank from it tonight while I read her a story and then tucked her into bed with her teddy....then of course we wanted the bottle!
I realise this might take a few nights to get used to but is there any other ideas I could try to get rid of the bottle?? (I guess I shouldn't have had her so reliant on it for so long! It's such a comfort to her - and now I have a job on my hands trying to get her off it!)
Any suggestions? Thank you muchly!
