  • i weaned my daughter off slowly about a week before she turned 1. she drank 6 ozs of formula so i put 2 ozs of milk and 4 ozs of formula for a week, then a week later increased the milk by another 2 ozs, etc. it worked really well for her. i only warmed it up for her night feeding.

  • My daughter will be one in two weeks. I give her a splash of milk in a sippy cup along with water. I will slowly add more milk and less water, until she is drinking straight milk. The bottles and the formula will "disappear" at the same time (well, except for the morning and bedtime bottle)! So far so good...

  • she was off the bottle at 6 months, since then has been a sippy cup =)
