I am wondering why it's ok to BF into the toddler years, but bottles are expected to be tossed by one year old....Teeth problems ASIDE, are there health reasons for this?? My daughter was breastfed for 8 months, then BM in bottle until 13 months old...just wondering for people who bottlefeed why it's such a horrible thing to do past a year old....

I don't think one out of the whole day is going to cause near an issue, but have you thought about switching her to the tippy cups that are bottle like? Walmart and Hyvees have a tippy called Nubs they have a tippy mouth piece, but they are a material that is softer. And no valves so they are a lot easier to clean. I think if you are aware of the issues it can cause and doing what you can to prevent them than you are doing well.

I've read that prolonged bottle feeding can lead to iron deficiency and anemia. Since you said your child is only drinking from bottle once a day then I don't think it should be an issue.
