when is a good time to take away the bottle

You know what, my daughter quit taking a bottle all by herself when she was ready, but if you are worried that will not happen, I agree with the other comment. Switch to a sippy cup. They do serve the same function and it will be easier for you.

Now is a great time to take the bottle away. A sippy cup serves the same function as a bottle and it's pretty easy to get used to. At this age they should already be experiementing with a regular cup. With both of my boys I took one feeding away a week and traded it with a sippy cup, until my oldest was off the bottle and youngest off the breast. It worked out well for both of them.
