My daughter is 14 months and up to this point has been great about switching from nursing to a bottle, and then to a sippy cup. She also drinks out of regular cups. My husband wants to eliminate the bottle all together and just have her drink her milk out of a sippy cup. We are visiting his mother, and she is insisting that our daughter drink from a bottle for another year. She says the baby needs the sucking action. I am asking for insight. Has anyone read anything or have an opinion on when and why the bottle should be replaced by a sippy cup?
