Is bottle weaning at age 1 a good idea?
How would you go about it?
I want to start the weaning process to a sippy cup at 11 months for my DD who is not 10 1/2 months, if anyone can give me some advice on how to go about it. DD already uses sippy cups (the straw ones) for water now.

Babies need water with meals and it can be in a sippy cup, cup with a straw, or just a cup. The AAP recommends no more than 4 oz of juice a day and it should be in an open cup. By 12 mo your baby should be a pro at drinking water from a cup. Your baby needs bottles of formula until 12 mo, 32 oz a day. At 12 mo you can wean from the bottles and formula and your baby needs no cow's milk to drink. All your baby/toddler needs to drink is water.
