When I took my son to his 9 month old well baby check up, his doctor told me that she wanted to make sure that he was off the bottle around his first birthday. I really didn’t think this was going to be possible to wean him from the bottle by the time he was a year old but it was easier than I expected it to go. I was planning on weaning him from the bottle after his first birthday but I really wasn’t trying to rush him or force him to grow up to fast. I was a bit sad when his doctor suggested transitioning to the sippy cup because that meant that he was growing up and becoming a toddler.
