  • 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 sleep...do 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 hospital...so 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 him..so 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.
