Need to get DD off the bottle...

THE PEDI SAID SHE NEEDS TO BE OFF THE BOTTLE AND THE DAYCARE SHE IS STARTING IN MAY AGREES. I HAVE BEEN UNSUCESSFUL GETTING HER TO DRINK MILK THROUGH A SIPPY!! SHE TAKES WATER JUST FINE FROM A SIPPY. HELP!

Re: Need to get DD off the bottle...

  • Have you tried a straw cup?
  • DD just learned a straw yesterday but havent tried milk...
  • We are finally through with bottles (and boob!) as of last week.  dd would only drink milk warm, so I would warm it, and then offer it in a sippy.  She wasn't happy about it, but she was thirsty so she drank. 

    I cut out the evening bottle last. Pedi said just go cold turkey... and I sorta did that. GL!

    I took away the afternoon bottle first, then morning, then evening.  I offer milk in a sippy when she wakes and at all meals. They only need around 16 oz and no more.  

    ps- do you know you're typing in all caps? ;)

  • I don't have any advice - just commiserating! We're having to do the same thing and having trouble.  DD loves her bottles...it's definitely going to be challenging. She'll be transitioning to a new room at daycare soon and they only do sippy cups, too. 

    We're definitely going to try the straw cup and (semi) cold turkey routes.  Good luck!
