How to wean baby off bottle almost 1 year, too early?

Trying to wean baby off bottle. He is almost 1 year is that too early? My nutritionist said he needs to learn how to drink out of sippy cup to work new muscles. Right now we are using the nuby kind and it's the only one so far that he will drink half way decent from. Even when he drinks from there it takes forever to drink just a little bit where as a bottle he chugs it down.

  • My son is 10 months and is no longer on a bottle of any kind. We started with the same type of cup and worked our way up to regular old Take n toss sippys. Iknow your frustration to the adjustment it took my LO like a month to figure it out. But after that it was a rapid transition to hard spouted cups.
