I tried at 1yr and DS wouldn't have anything to do with the sippy, so I tried again at 13 months and he was off the bottle at 13.5 months. He was off sippy cups at 18 months, he uses open cups or straws.

I stopped giving my daugther her bottle when she turned one. I had gradually started implementing her sippy cup more and more until she didn't realize she wasn't on the bottle anymore.

I stopped giving bottle around 13 or 14 months. No problems. He was only down to one bottle before bed.

i dont think theres any right age...i took both my boys off the bottle at 1 year, and gave them a sippy cup. however, at 23 months, my youngest is reluctant to give up his sippy cup lol...
