With my son we did 3 bottle of milk and other drinks in a sippy cup and one day just stopped giving him bottles and used the sippy cup for milk. You can also take one away at a time and then to none at all, or maybe reduce the amount of milk in the bottles

I would start breaking him from the bottle now. During the day give him the sippy and then just have one bottle in the morning and one in the evening. Once you feel comfortable with how he is doing during the day then start to take out the other two bottles. His liquid intake may go down and that is ok.....you are actually wanting him to get more from food then from the liquid.
