When Do You Stop Using Bottles

I was wondering, at what point to you stop using bottles? I really hadn't thought about it before, but once your baby is eating solid meals, has turned one, is drinking goat or cow's milk...when does the night time or morning bottle stop?

I nursed my first but I weaned him from b___st a few days after his 1st birthday. I of course started the weaning process a couple of months before. With my second he had no bottle at 11 months but it was because he refused it on his own, so we did the sippy cup early with him. My dd is only 9 months but I plan on starting the weaning process in a month or two and hopefully she will be completely weaned at 1 year, but she seem more attached to the bottle then my son did so we will just have to see. I think it is best to try and get rid of the bottle at a year old because the longer they keep them the more attached they are and because of their teeth.

All my babies are off a bottle by 11 months to a year.

Well I have to say I hadn't even thought about it - I have 4 and they are done with the bottle whenever they don't want it any more...They are all nursed and once weaned only get a bottle before bedtime....I think they all chucked that by the time they were about 18/20 months...Its the only time they do get a bottle so I really don't think it does any harm.,..Now that I've said that - mu youngest a- 15 months will still be looking for one at 5 ...lol

DD is 15 months and still has a bottle at night and in the morning because she refuses milk in a sippy. I have no issue with the bottle and will stop when she wants to stop with it.
