Can I ask why it's recommended to wean off bottles at 12 months? My DD never has one unattended, I always hold her when she's drinking so she doesn't take a sip here or there. Just has a bottle for a feed, then it's taken away.

I started DD on a bottle at 12 months, as long as she is drinking that and not wanting to get back on the boob, I am happy to let her drink from it until she is 18

Bub turned 12 months and we went will a spill free tilt sippy cup. Cold turkey, no turning back. Bubs are very adaptable, it's often parents hesitations that are holding things back.

He is 13 months and we have switched over to cows milk with a formula feed at night to give him the added nutrition just in case he isn't getting everything he needs, but I am curious as to the type of cup to give him. I tried giving him a tip up cup but it seemed to confuse him alot because he normally has water in that cup and he didn't want the milk.
Also, what is the recommended amount of milk? He has a bottle before each sleep (about 3 sleeps per day) so in total he is having 3 cows milk bottles (about 250ml) and a formula bottle before bed (200ml) how much is too much?

Bad parent here. DS was 3.5 before he self weaned. He only had one bottle in the morning at that point. We joked it was his morning coffee. He would always wake up really grumpy but after his morning bottle he was fine.

My ds had the bottle til around 2. Weaning to milk in a UHT container with a straw or a cup of milk with a straw.
Our dd still has a bottle at 20 months, but is only having 2 bottles a day. The rascal still wants it warmed or she won't drink it and will stubbornly wait til we give her warmed milk. Not sure what to do about that one, our ds couldn't care less about the temp of formula or milk. I think I'll gradually warm the milk less & less over time and see what happens. I'm in no rush to get rid of the bottle. Sippy cups are SO much harder to clean when they are filled with milk.
