  • My son started using a sippy cup at 6 months. I just took the bottle away. If he wanted to eat thats what he needed to eat of.

  • If she already uses the sippy cups, then NOW is the time. It'll be less confusing this way.

  • I took the bottle away the day after my son turned 1. He had absolutely no problems with it, as we had been giving him sippy's since he was 6months old. I also took the pacifier away at the same time. He found one that I had missed, and I told him that those were for babies, and we threw it away. No tears at all.

  • I'd say if she doesn't need it to go to it now.
    My 2 1/2 yr old actually weaned himself . My DH had 2 major back surgeries within 10 tens and was in the I was right by his side. Our son stayed at my moms. When I kept calling to check up on things...she told me...he didn't want the bottle...and she wasn't going to force that was it. He was done with it. He had just turned a year old.

  • With my son, we took him off at 11 months. We didn;t need to wean. He took the sippy just fine.
