  • It beats a 2 1/2 year old lifting your shirt and saying “booboo” when she wants a drink. I breast fed her for a loooong time but thoroughly enjoyed it


  • We gave milk in a sippy cup once they reached a certain age.


  • Have you tried warm milk in another drinking device? Like a sippy cup? Maybe if she realises she can have it another way,ms he may give up the bottle


  • my 3 year old has a cup of milk morning and night. just cut the tips off all her teats


  • how did you do? my 3 yr old boy is the same. he chews through the teats so annoying! I tried sippy cups but not happy! wont even have milk from a normal cup during the day. I guess he will grow out of it.


  • Try to swap her to a sippy cup. If she revolts, get one of those bottles that can take a teat, and a sippy top, and a standard sports top. You may be able to transition her more easily if it’s the same bottle with different tops.
