Q.

Bottle

Dr,
My son is 2yr and 8 m, he is very attached to his bottle (day &  night!).
I really feel it is time to take him off the bottle.
I need some advice on how to do this. Do I just stop giving him a bottle ?

You need to first encourage him to drink from a cup. Emphasise that he is now a very big boy! In any case he only needs about 2 cups of milk a day now.
