How many bottles of milk depends on the child.  Most children start weaning from formula in bottles to milk in sippy cups around the age of 1.  You aren't "late" but I'd start working on those skills :).  

And the amount of milk depends on the child!  For a normal child (50th percentile weight) I'd say about 2-3 cups per day.  For  children that are underweight, even moreso.  Children at this age typically eat quite a bit of food, but if your child doesn't have a good three meals a day, you can up her milk intake until she gets there!

My Leo is 17 months old, but very underweight.  He drinks 5-6 6oz bottles of milk per day.  Due to his food allergies and oral sensory disorders, his diet is extremely limited.  As a result, we kept up with te formula and bottles for the meantime.  He's slowly progressing....but he is also a special case!

Good luck!

My kids stopped formula and bottles at 12 months. They used sippy cups after that and had 3-4  with about 4-5 ounces of milk each and a little watered down juice or plain water

I agree. When mom daughter was that age we put milk in sippy cups.

As far as co sleeping you can slowing start transitioning her into her own bed. I don't have a lot of experience with it, maybe you should start a post just about the cosleeping question.

I'd say its time to transfer from bottles to sippy cups and from formula to whole milk. To make the transition I started at 11 months. I slowly gave more regular milk and less breast milk or formula.

at that age she doesn't need formula she can have cow's milk (whole milk not 2% or low fat or skim). give her a sippy cups of milk, water, juice though out the day give her foods high in iron like red meats.

As for the cosleeping start out with her taking naps in her bed. you can rock her sing to her what ever your routine is for naps and when she is asleep put her in her bed cover her up with a blanket and leave the room once she realizes that she isn't being left or abandoned she should relax and adjust and after she adjusts to naps in her bed (might take up to a month or more of consistently doing it) you should start putting her in her bed at night too. do not give in and let her in your bed or you will never break the habit.
