  • My daughter is 3 and still uses her bottle just for milk

  • We swapped to a leakproof sippy for day time drinks when she was about 10 months old. She still had a bottle to go to bed which we weaned her off at about 18 months. She then had milk before going to bed At 2 1/2 years she othen asked us to take the lid off so she could drink out of a glass like we do. We still have have a leakproof drink container for her on trips.

  • My son was 10 months, my daughter was almost 3. All kids are different. :)

  • 10 months they can hold it pretty well

  • We introduced a sippy cup around 8mths & cut out the bottles at 18mths.

  • Thank you for your replies

  • We introduced a sippy cup early and she was really excited for it. She weaned herself just after 12 months, only occassionally using a bottle during rest times till she was around 14/15 months old

  • About 18 months :)

  • When my daughter was 12 months old

  • My daughter is 16 months and we are just getting rid of it now

  • My third child stopped fully by the time he was one and went to a cup with a straw, then onto a normal cup when by the time he was two, my other kids were much harder a demanded a bottle at night till they both were three years old. (that was when i cracked it and the easter bunny stole their bottles in exchange for eggs). Although they were using a cup during the day, they just found the only way they could settle at night was wth a bottle.
