  • Just after 15 month. If he was thirsty I would give him a sippy cup with water. He was so mad at first.

  • Around one, and we switched to the sippy cup, he took it rather well. Felt like a big boy

  • about 12 months. one night he refused the bottle- then the next night, then the next night- so i just said "cool!. he weaned himself!"

  • Never. They never went to bed with a bottle. Letting your baby take a bottle to bed is huge mistake. It also makes it that much harder to wean from the bottle.

  • When they turned 1. Usually the bedtime bottle was the last one they were on (we started weaning them off at 10 months so by the time they turned 1 they were down to 1 bottle a day). And when the formula ran out I just stopped giving them one. Never had any issues.

  • Legalmommy - she said before bed, not to bed.

    Mine stopped at 12-13 months when we got rid of the bottle and switched from formula to milk.
