Your daughter is already 4 years old and you will need to break this habit she has developed. She certainly does not need to drink a bottle of roobos tea a 2am every night at her age. She is perfectly happy to drink from a cup during the day so that is not the issue here. As you correctly say this is part habit and partly a comfort thing. Try a star chart with her. Tell her that if she sleeps through and does not wake for her night bottle she will get a gold star. When she gets 3 stars in a row she will get a small reward. If she makes 3 nights then raise the number of stars to 4, then 5 then 6 before the next reward.Each time raise the number of stars by one before her next reward.She should soon stop if she can get through a week without waking for this bottle.
