My son is now 2 1/2 years old, i just cant get him off of the bottle. He is very dependent on his bottle, and because of this, i also cannot poty train him because he wees alot. I have tried to take the bottle away, and he has a hell of a fit, especially at night. He just wont go back to sleep without his bottle. What do i do, it is driving me mad, because at night he wakes up like 10 times because his bottle is empty, then i have to get up and refill it. I only get like 4 hours of sleep a night. Please advise. Thnk you.

Your son's present behaviour cannot continue for even one more night. He expects to get 10 bottles a night at his age. He is simply getting too much milk besides the fact that no one is sleeping. There is only one solution and that is to go through the controlled crying method. Pleaase look this up. This will be very hard on your nerves and may take more than one night but it will work if you are determined to end this behaviour.
