How to drop the nap time feed

Any suggestions appreciated.
I wish to drop ds's nap time feed and wonder, what do I do now?
He is 2, eats really well, and after his breakfast plays for an hour or so then I put him down to his cot - dark quiet room, cuddly toy etc etc
Until now he takes a feed then drifts off to sleep on the boob and I lay him down.
Hes quite capable of going to sleep without it, as my DH is increasingly putting him down at night and he can be laid down and get himself off to sleep.

So I'm just wondering what others suggest - give him a bottle of milk into the cot? A beaker? Nothing? Just let him cry a while til he learns how to settle when I put him down?
Any hints?
Thanks so much.
