Hi,my baby is now 17 months old, can anyone advice and give me tips as to when is it the right time to stop bottle feeding?

it depends on your baby. if they can drink from a cup or a sippy cup and there aren't any other major changes going on then it would be a good time. Ideally you are supposed to get them off the bottle before 2. With my son, every time we forgot a bottle in the car, or part of it broke, Iwould throw it out until one day he had none and had to only drink froma sippy cup. He was moderately attached to the bottle but after a few days he was ok.

It is probaly one of those things that is different for every kid. I gave my girls those sippy cups with a rubbery straw that sticks out and they both took it fine. My girls were almost one when I switched them to the sippy cup. For them the rubber straw made the change not that big of a deal. I should also say that neither of my girls were at all attached to the bottle. Good luck!
