My daughter is already three years old and until now she’s bottle feeding. I am glad that she loves to drink milk but I do not like how milk and sugar acids attacks my child’s teeth.
As much as possible I wanted to train her to drink milk using straw so that at least it could save her teeth but how?

My child is still asking for a milk during midnight and nap time.

Any help?

At a very young age I taught my little one to drink in her cup. She also drinks directly into her water bottle. Try eliminating bottles and if she is not still used in open cups, ou can first start with sippy cups.

I do let my children drink in a bottle at the age 2.

They were trained alternate bottle feed to cup with straw by the age 3.

During 3 to 4 years old, they were trained to drink water and milk in a cup.

Strict implementation with regards on how you adjust from bottle feed to cup is very crucial for children.

This should be adapted every time there is a certain timeline on how you will implement any changes.

Do it gradually, not forcibly to your kids.
