my son just turned 1 and he still strongly prefers his bottle. i tried weaning him off the bottle and on to sippy cups, but he became completely opposed to the sippy cups, and therefore wasn't getting any fluids unles i gave in and gave him a bottle. i feel like it will happen when he is ready, but my ped says that the longer i wait the harder it will be. is this way to old to still be taking a bottle? has anyone else had these problems weaning their little one? does it really get harder if i try and wait it out until i can explain to him that he needs to drink from his "big boy" cup?
