WIC so subsequently DH says we need to get him off the bottle at 14 months. He's almost 11 months right now he turns one the last day of July so we have about three months and he is very attached to his bottle especially when tired. He uses the cup and is fine with it unless he's tired then he just wants his bottle. He basically just uses it when he's tired.
If he only really has 4 bottles a day and for those he won't take the cup, how do I even begin to wean him from the bottle? Why do I have to give up our cuddle time(he only really slows down for the bottle) with him at 14 months? Is there some kind of research that I can see on this for why? I guess I just always figured we'd wean him closer to 18-24 months nothing past 2 but not still so much of a baby.

You can still have cuddle time by reading him a book or telling him a story. Cuddle time doesn't need to involve a bottle. Both of my kids went to sippy cups by about 13 months.... but I didn't have to give up our night time routine.
