My son is now 8 months old and has been drinking his juice and water out of a sippy cup for about 2 months now.. I have given him his formula in a sippy cup but once I did a friend of mine told me I shouldnt because he still needs the sucking motion from the bottle... There for I started giving him juice and water in a sippy cup and his formula in a bottle...I am determained no matter what he will be off the bottle by his 1st birthday.... So they question is, Can I just go ahead and give him everything in a sippy cup and just keep a bottle or two just for emergencies? Or does he really need that sucking motion from a bottle and just hold out til his 1st birthday?

At 8 mos. he definitely does not need the sucking of a bottle that's when they are newborn. If he will drink from a sippy cup, get him off a bottle before he gets attached. All 4 of my kids were started on sippycups when they were 6 mos old and off bottles by the time they were 9 mos. Very easy transition and no crying or anything like that. I breastfed them too, but they were all on sippys full time by 9 most.
