Nope! Not at all, in fact it's worse to keep the bottle after 12 months as it can be of detriment to their oral health.

I think whatever you want to do, bottle or no bottle is fine. You could try to transition to a cup of milk at bedtime instead perhaps? My mum was also very pro bottle for my toddler ("Aww, he loves it look at him") but never forced her opinion in the same way luckily! But my DS had a bottle at bedtime until at least 2 yrs anyway as it helped him chill out for bed and my attempts at switching to a cup failed. Never affected his teeth.
So I think do whatever is right for you and your DD

Not cruel at all. I think the earlier you wean them off bottles the easier it is. All of my 4 girls were weaned between 12-14 months.

Too much cows milk can hinder iron absorption. Also bottles can cause dental problems. This is not the case with breastfeeding.

Do what works . My 2 year old loves his bottle and dummy due to nothing more than lazy parents . I can't deal with the drama it would cause stopping it.

Old thread revived! Seeing as though this was my thread, just thought I'd give an update! She's now 18 months old and we offer her a cup of warm milk before bed but she doesn't usually drink much, only a couple of sips. No concerns with calcium though as she's a yogurt and cheese addict!
