  • By the time my DS was a year old he was completely off of the bottle. I started introducing him to milk around 11-12 months. Instead of giving him bottles, I replace them with sippy cups of milk.

  • My first was just 12 months old and it was a 2 day struggle but successful. My third is 17 months and still on it (because Daddy caves and gives it to him!).

  • 11 months. He was drinking from a sippy at 7 months, and by 11 months, he got water, juice and formula from a sippy. He drank formula until 14 months though. LOL

  • at about 1 year. I started giving her the bottle only in the morning and at night, and had her drink from a cup the rest of the day. Then I removed the one in the morning. finally, I removed the one at night. It was a 2 week process.

  • My son is 12 months, I took the bottle away at 9 months because he drank really well from a sippy. I started him on whole milk 2 weeks ago.
