    If you use avent bottles then you can get a sippy spout that can go in instead of the teat. Then it's a bottle and sippy cup all at the same time

    Oh yes I was also told by the Early childhood nurse that i must get rid of bottles by 12 months. I have now changed one of the feed to straw cup but my DD would take a sip then throw the cup away. Great. And I feed ebm milk too, another cup of liquid hold go down the drain.... I am interested to know what other solutions people have.

    I know this is an old thread, but I’d be keen to hear how people went; we are in the same situation. DS will be 1 in 2 weeks and the nurse has been trying to get us to ween since his 10 month appointment. Since that appointment we’ve reduced him from 4 x 240ml to 3 x 180ml per day (dropping the dream feed).

    While I understand and appreciate the push to ween off bottles by 1 year, I am hesitant for a few reasons. While DS is happy to drink water from a bottle with a straw, he rejects formula / milk from it. Flat out. Does not want it. He’s never taken to sippy cups either, and I have tried 5 or 6 brands. He’s been difficult to feed from day dot. We struggled breastfeeding and had to introduce formula at 2 weeks. After having been told my child was essentially starving, I am very sensitive to letting him go hungry. Despite my nurse telling me he won’t starve. He was also slow to start solids. While he was happy to pick at things from 6 months, he only let us start feeding him (via spoon) at 10.5 months. I was happy to let him feed himself, but he didn’t get very much in compared to his peers (in mothers group).

    My mother’s instinct says to ignore the nurse, and go slow. As he consumes more solids, he will need the bottle less, and we can deal with the comfort factor of his bedtime feed when he’s older.

    We also have an international move coming up, and I don’t want to introduce anymore changes than are necessary.

    Why r u weaning at 12 months? That seems v early.... Heaps of my friends and my ds aren't weaned at 2y. I don't see why only sucking for comfort us a reason not to anyway, emotional health is important.... My ds is slowing on boob since my supply has plummeted and I'm just happy he's asking for bottles a bit....
