My daughter was 13 months when I took away her bottle. I just stopped giving them to her cold turkey. Had no problems with it.

not too early.... pediatricians recommend at 12 months to take away the bottle. I would recommend to take it away slowly, during the day instead of a bottle to give them a "sippy" cup instead of the bottle, and if you are giving them formula or breast milk put that in the cup. then after a week, replace the the bottle twice. A week later you can replace the bottle 3 times a day.... after they get used to the sippy cup, try giving them a cup with no lid on it at meal times...
