I have twin boys 2.5yrs old, they are still having three bottles of milk (warm) a day, just wondering if i continue to give them bottles as long as they wont them or stop giving them bottles.

I would suggest putting it in a strawcup or sippy cup. or "big boy cup" i dont think its a huge problem drinking out of a bottle but i know ill be excited for the day i dont have to wash bottles!

At what ever point your ready to mop it off the floor daily :) OK JK, my peds dr saw nothing wrong with me giving my toddlers their milk in bottles considering it was the only way they would take it, as long as they could actually use a cup for other fluids.

My 2 year old still has milk in bottles, she uses sippy cups, and she uses regular cups when she feels like it.

My 3 year old weaned herself from milk in bottles very suddenly & told me bottles were for babies with no nudging from me at about 28 months.

Your mom, don't sweat it, they aren't going to go to college using those bottles.

well i dont give them cold milk cause they tip it out everywhere, should i still give them milk if they need it, its good for there bones and teeth isnt it? they've chewed the tops off the bottles so there's a big hole in the top and they wont drink out of anything else. thanks everyone
