    Default When should I stop giving the bottle ?

    At what age did you shop giving your child a bottle ?? There doesn't seem to be a recommended age . I'm feeding my toddler formula and occasional cows milk

    "They" say 12 months. We tried a sippy cup at 13 months but no luck, even though he drinks water out of it fine.

    Have tried a few times again since then but still no. He is good off his morning bottle anyway so thinking I will just start giving him a sippy cup of milk with brekkie soon and if he doesn't drink it then no big deal

    No plans to take away his night time bottle though.

    He only has water in the day.

    12 months, beyond that it can start to damage their teeth apparently. Our DS refused milk in a sippy cup at first but we did not offer a bottle and after a couple of goes he took the sippy cup. After that he really cut down on his milk intake and upped his solid intake.

    We did the same with dd & ds. Ds was a dummy sucker also & surprising he gave the dummy away after a few days of not having his bottle also with no coaching from us.
