I know that the "experts" want us to take the bottle away at one year, but it's funny how the "expert" opinions change drastically every few years. My son is 20 years old. He had perfect speech, and I mean perfect. His teeth are perfectly straight, no braces, and he's never had a cavity or dental problem in his entire life. He loved his bottle and I let him have it until he was three years old. He did not have it in his crib. He did not walk around "sipping" it all day. It was one bottle when he woke up. Another before his nap. Another after his nap, and the last one before bedtime. They were six ounces. He ate a wide variety of healthy foods and grew steadily.
continued ... Oh, and he had his pacifier until three as well, but only in his bed. Check the picture of my son on my profile. Look at his beautiful smile and teeth. If there is an emotional attachment and resistance to transition to a cup, let the child lead and just make sure she's eating and growing well, and try not to let it worry you. She will be fine.
