    Oh thank you to those ladies that said later is ok to loose the bottle. My dd is 25 months and still loves her bottle, she drinks water from a cup but her milk is her bottle. The amount of stares and people telling me she shouldnt have her bottle is unbelievable... thank you I feel a bit better about it now.

    Oh I'm not getting rid of it now, they are in love with it, just wanted to know when is the time to do it... DD2 is climbing out of the cot but dd1 stays put, moving them into beds in the next few weeks just for day sleeps and then if things go ok then we will do the full transition.

    DD only stopped having a bottle a few months ago. She is 2 and a half currently. She chose to give it up

    We got rid of it by 13 months, easy as, just replaced one bottle per day with milk in a sippy cup, slight protest at first but got over it within a day.

    DS is 21 months and we just recently gave it up, we just asked him for a few nights if he wanted a bot or milk from a big boys mug (with a straw), when he chose the mug for three nights in a row we stopped asking.

    He has some milk in a sippy during the day and then milk from his mug at night and he's been really great about it.
