I have same problem. My daughter is 2. 5. She can drink through straw, direct from bottle or tumbler. Even then she likes her feeding bottle (for milk and water), more so because she lies down and sips before going to sleep.

Hi Aditi, sometimes you have to take drastic steps to wean the child away from some habit. Just keep away all bottles and tell your child some story--a fairy took it or something--and dont give it back to him. He will cry and weep and not sleep etc but as a mother you have to show patience if you want this habit to go away. Give him milk instead in sippers or glass. Bottle feed at this stage can damage his teeth, create cavities etc.

Since ur son is 2 yrs old, Introduce straw cups and gradually take him to cups. First few days give him water in straw cup. Then after a week give him Milk in that. Hope this helps.
