We switched to sippy cups at 1. Wasn't a big deal though, but I did use cupes with fun prints & call out the characters. He just never looked back...binkie was another story : )

One night after they turned 1 I went through the house and got all the bottles and threw them away and replaced with sippy cups. Great thing is they have those that are kinda like the bottle in the nipple and you can progress from there. They have all the different kinds of cups for all stages.

My son is almost two and my doctor wants him on the bottle for a little while longer...but durring the day he only gets a bottle for nap time and another one for bed time...other than that we do sippy cups for meals and to drink in general. Just make sure you reassure her and give her lots of praise when she drinks out of the sippy cup correctly. At that age they really respond to positive praise.

Happy Birthday to your little one!! My son stopped taking the bottle on his 1st birthday, I just took it away and gave him a sippy cup in it's place. He never cried or really even asked about it, that's my advice to you, just take it away, you won't traumatize her. Good Luck!!!!

IT WAS REALLY HARD FOR ME TO TAKE THE BOTTLE AWAY FROM MY ONE YEAR OLD. I DECIDED TO SWITCH TO A SOFT NIPPLE SIPPY CUP TELLING HER IT WAS HER BIG GIRL CUP.AFTA A COUPLE WEEKES I JUST SLOWLY DIDNT GIVE IT TO HER AT NAPS AND THEN EVENTUALLY NOT AT BED TIME. SHE CRIED AT FIRST AND I WOULD FEEL BAD BUT SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO BE STRONG. AND REMEMBER BOTTLE ROT AND HAVING TEETH PULLED IS NOT VERY FUN
