    Derrin still has a bottle at bedtime and i keep a bottle of water at the side of his bed incase he wakes for a drink through the night. Every child is different and you know what is best for your child.

    I wouldn't panic too much...yes its not great for her teeth but at the same time her teeth won't all fall out because she still has a bottle at bedtime. As long as you're cleaning her teeth as well as you can and that's the only bottle she is having then I think its ok.

    Tom's the same age and he still has a bottle of milk at bedtime but that's his only one now. We do our best with cleaning his teeth 2x a day but sometimes it is a real battle. I'm going to try getting him onto a beaker at bedtime soon but mainly becuase I've had enough of washing bottles now!

    Holly still has a bedtime bottle of milk. I am in no rush to get rid of it, her speech is great, her teeth are perfect and it gives her comfort before bedtime - she doesn't suck her thumb, or have a dummy (never has), I figure she will let me know when she doesn't need it any more (like she has with all other bottles).

    I was worrying about this and my mum said I was having a bottle until way past my second birthday, and there's nothing wrong with my teeth!

    the one thing i would say though is getting rid of the drink/bottle before bed will makee potty training that bit easier i think.... if they are still going to bed with drinks and have access to drinks in night it may make night time potty training harder as their little bladders will be full..... xxx

    Lilly wont sleep unless she has a bottle of juice or milk in bed with her. #she has all her teeth and is not causing any damage or for them to come forward and she lives with a dummy 24/7 cause she wont give it up lol xx

    some kids have blankets or toys or summet to comfort them in bed, just happens to be lillys comfort is the bottle xx
