How old was your child when they did away with the bedtime bottle?

And did they give it up on their own or did you wean them off of it? And how?

  • When my kids turned 1 they were down to just one bottle a day before bed and when the formula ran out I took that bottle away (since the only thing I think should go in a bottle is formula). So they were between 11 1/2 months and 13 months when they stopped having a bottle at bedtime (that's 4 kids).

  • I think my kids were about 1 when I took the bottle away completely. Thankfully they didn't have a hard time and hardly seemed like they missed it! Probably because I breastfed mostly and only used a bottle for juice.

  • They each gave it up on their own at 9-10 months.
