I took my sons bottle away a couple days after he turned 1. He went straight to sippy cup with no problems. I also enjoyed the time with my son too, but instead of bottle time we have book time now. The longer your child has a bottle the harder it is to take away. Good Luck!

i breastfeed so my son never really got a bottle, so he went straight to sippy cups once he could have lil amounts of juice. and now i formula feed and breastfeed so he gets his formula in sippy cups too. I started that at about 9 months and he's 10 months now.
