started dropping a bottle and switching to sippy at 11 months with soft-tipped ones. Nothing wrong with warm milk before bed as long as their teeth are brushed afterwards.
We introduced the sippy cup with every meal at 6 months so my 12 months they didn't care if it was a sippy or bottle. We just stopped giving them the bottle and offered sippy instead and they were fine with it. As for the bottle before bed, we just kept offering it earlier and earlier and started offering a snack with it. Eventually we got it to be where they have a snack an hour before bed with a little to drink. My oldest was harder to switch to that, but my youngest loved food so he didn't care if it was milk or a snack, he just wanted something!
