Your son has become used to this routine and it will be difficult to stop both bottles at night. He refuses the water because he is not thirsty as such but may be hungry or just used to getting milk.Give his last bottle in the evening as late as possible before bedtime. He needs to be on a satisfyin formula which will make him feel full such as Nido or Parmalat First Growth milk.
