    12 mths here. I just altered the bedtime routine so the bottle was earlier on for about a month. So instead of bath, bottle, bed I did bath, bottle, book, bed. The same book every night (where is the Green Sheep) became a strong sleep association. DD had no problem giving up her bottles.

    We stopped at 12 months. By then he was down to one before bed. We was upset for about ten minutes and then never looked back. I think that waiting any longer would of made it harder.

    14 months, I replaced them with sipper cups. My DD1 LOVED her bottle which was why it had to go, easier to do it when they're younger than older. If I was trying to get it off her now at 2.5 I would probably lose. At about 18months old she started wearing the pants in our house..

    I'm the same as others and stopped my 4 girls cold turkey at 12-14months. Was always told the longer it is left the harder it is to wean.

    This is exactly the same for us. DD is 18 months and refuses milk in a sippy cup. It is also the only thing that comforts her when she wakes at night and half the time she doesn't even actually drink her bottle overnight, it is completely becoming a comfort thing as opposed to a dietry need, she just likes to hold her bottle.
