How do I take his bottle away? Part 2

Then decrease to one bottle a day, given in your arms at bedtime, as you read him a book. The next day offer the bottle with only water in it. He may refuse it. The next evening sit together at the kitchen table having milk in a cup or eating yogurt with a spoon; read him a bedtime story, and do not give a bottle.

During this transition time, play games with your son, go outdoors as often as you can, and cuddle together reading books several times a day. Take juice packs or a plastic thermos with you on walks and excursions, so your son understands that straws and cups will now replace bottles. Be patient and understanding, but don’t give him a bottle, even if he cries and throws tantrums.

At the end of the week, your son will be on a healthy road developmentally and “dentally,” too. And you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you helped him enter this new phase of growing up.

Perhaps the most widespread cosmetic dental procedure is teeth bleaching. Teeth whitening at home gives the great, reliable opportunity if it comes to convenience and ease of use.
