Re: Getting off the bottle, cold turkey style?
Eh. My feeling was always, if it comforts him and he's attached to it, let him have it. So, because of that DS just stopped the bottles (before nap and bed) at 2. After his second birthday, I tried switching him to "big boy bottles" (sippy cups that have more of a nipple than a spout), that worked for a few weeks while we transitioned bedtime routine (went from snuggling on the couch with the bottle to reading books in his room), then he just kind of didn't care about the bottle so much. Honestly, I didn't really push it and I think he was just ready to be done.
