start introducing a sippy now. Put all of his formula into a sippy and give it to him at meal time. Im assuming hes eating more table food now, so formula isnt their number one nutrition source so its no big deal if he doesnt drink it all. At one year just throw the bottles away, its the best way. He may have a hard time with the sippy at first, just make sure you show him how it works, I taught my daughter by holding the sippy like a bottle at first to feed her, and shes 8 months now and completely off the bottle. Try the nubby sippys. they have a soft nipple that is like a bottle, so its an easy transition. good luck!
