When did you stop the bottle?

For those who bottle feed when did you stop giving your LO a bottle? My DD is 14 months and still uses it frequently. She also eats three meals a day and knows how to use a sippy cup and a regular cup, but I want to get rid of the bottles so I don't have to wash them any more.

My DD didn't start the bottle until 8 months because I was pregnant and my milk seemingly disappeared, so I wouldn't say that she was totally attached to them. I was successful in just taking them away when she was 13 months. She was really laid back about it and didn't even care!

We took them away at 12 months, all except for one nighttime bottle. But at 18 months we took that away and there was no problems at all. She didn't care.

9 or 10 months--I just went from weaning them off the breast right to a sippy cup.

Eeek...my son is 16 months and still on the bottle. He does know how to use a regular cup but still takes 3 bottles a day. I guess I need some tips as well.......

Re: When did you stop the bottle?

My dd was about 13 months when we weaned from the bottle, but then she was only getting 1 bottle a day of warmed milk before bedtime. If your little one is able to take a sippy cup, then I say just start transitioning all beverages to sippy cups and start phasing out bottles all together.

I can't remember exactly, but probably between 16 and 18 months. My dd was fine with juice from a sippy cup, but only wanted milk from a bottle. It only took a few days of trying to get her to switch I think.

DD is 10 months and she does really well with a small sippy cup, but frankly, I am not ready to give up the bottle . She still has one before bed, and I really think it's more for me than her. Fortunately, she's willing to humor me.
