  • everyone will have a different answer....our first peditrician said 10 months, the 2nd said 15 months... my daughter didnt stop until she was 2, that is what time I thought it was right ...and her teeth and everything are fine lol...... my son is going on 18 months and he still uses his once-twice a day ...but I think he will probably go off of it soon

    alot of people are saying not to give them sippie cups either....that they are as bad as bottles, but mine are still using them also, my daughter can use a big girl cup now but in the car or if she is dressed up, i am not taking the chance lol

  • I stopped giving my girl her bottle when I felt the time was right. There really is no certain age.

  • We took them away at 15 months. Our pediatrician advised us to be rid of them by 18 months. We tried to let her adjust on her own at 12 months. It didn't happen, so I just threw them out and started giving her a sippy cup only.

  • The AAP recommends at the age of 1. I took the bottle away at 6 mos and she was using a silicone soft spout sippy and then on a straw sippy by 12 mos.

  • My daughter stopped using a bottle completely about 15 months. I stopped giving it to her during the day at 12 months and giving her a bottle at night at 15 months.
