Re: Getting off the bottle, cold turkey style?
I've heard people doing them but I wouldn't in less they were past two but the bottles were no big deal. We did sippy cups young and then he got to using them around 10-11 months at meals, then I did them around 12 for the snuggles instead of bottles and then only used bottles in the middle of the night if we needed them and then I just put them away as he didn't care (my husband had the issue over son). I'd more find a sippy he likes first. My character will only use two styles/NUK with the same mouth piece as I've tried many many kinds (I just handed over our collection to a friend) and he refuses but I haven't pushed it hard either.
