start with the sipper cups with handles and hide the bottles where she cant see them, she may winge a while but will get over it sipper cups and bottles help, they in all supermarkets

Another great idea is by Gerber. They have these awesome sippy cups that have a soft spout insted of the hard spout. It helped my daughter weine away from the bottle. You can even take of the lid from the small soft spout sippy and place it on the tall sippy. She still uses the soft spout sippy and she is now 19 months old. good luck. (Babies r us) has them.

I would offer the sippy during meal times still allowing bottle for a week or two slowly replacing bottle until the sippy is all you use. Make sure not to let her have milk in bed as it can mess up her teeth. Hope that helps.

Our son went right to the sippy cup. Just pick the bottles up one day and put them away. For some kids its out of site, out of mind. She may just decide to say "Ok, I don't know where my bottle is, I'm thirsty...let's give this thing my mom keeps offering me a shot!" If you are firm and loving about it, she will get the picture quickly :) Good luck!
