  • I skipped giving my 3rd child a bottle at all. I introduced a cup at 6 months when I introduced solid foods.

  • my daughter is the same way. we distract her and limit it to 1-2 6-8oz bottles a day but try using a straw sippy cup. its the only one my DD loves.

  • When my son turned 1, we stopped giving him a bottle during the day, but we'd still give him one at night (warm milk). When he was about 14 months, he didn't even want that bottle anymore, so we got rid of them completely. I agree with shortyclmb, by the way, try the cups with the straws, mine really didn't care for sippy cups, but he LOVED those!

  • I introduced a sippy cup just before she turned a year. She never warmed up to it, so at 15 months I just threw out all the bottles and gave her a sippy only.

  • Any time now. Whenever you have had enough: Just do it! Take them away. She is old enough to handle a cup with no problem. Now it's a matter of 'want' You can do it!
