My son is 10 months old & has gotten accustomed to drinking from his sippy cup & lately that's all he drinks from. I feel that he is possibly ready to be completely weaned off the bottle. How long did it take for you girls to wean your kids off the bottle and do you have any tips on weaning?

I took my son off the bottle when he turned 14 months old. all he wanted was his sippy cup as well. so i just said okay took the bottles and put them in the trash. that was about it and he was fine with it. never cryed,yelled or fought me on it. if your son just really wants the sippy then dont fight him on it take the bottles and put them away. its his way of telling you hes ready.

I would say if he's wanting to use the sippy cup then get rid of the bottle. It didn't take my daughter long. I got her used to a sippy cup (started putting it on the high chair tray at about 6 mo), then at a year I got rid of the bottle. She did just fine. We didn't have any problems.
