  • Anytime now. Introduce a sippy cup and let him play with it and try it. Then once he masters it you can use it more and more and stop the bottles.

  • When a baby can hold a bottle they can hold a cup or sippy cup. I threw the bottles away at a year old.

  • You could just throw all his bottles away, he will have to learn to cope. Just give him plenty of extra attention and love for a few days.
