my daughter is 18 months old. She will take a sippy cup all day long but when it comes to naps and bedtime she throws a fit because she wants a bottle. She will throw herself around and throw the sippy cup at you until you give her a bottle. what should i do? it need some advice.

What is your reasoning for her to not have a bottle? Both of my children had a bottle of water at nap and bedtime until they were over 3. They gave up their bottles on their own, give your daughter the chance to do the same, without it being traumatic for you both.

I agree. She's still a baby and if it comforts her, where's the harm. Let her have the bottle until she decides to give it up.
