Got rid of bottles at 12 months. Pacis are still going to be a while. But now she only gets them mostly during naps and in the car. I do tote them when we're out but usually she doesn't want/need one if we're at a store or w/e.

No bottles since 11 months. We started to put her formula into sippy cups instead. I didn't want to have any trouble taking a bottle away.

No paci since 13 months. At 11.5 months we started to take it away. We took it away during the day and let her have it for naps and night-time. There were some days she still used it during the day though. Then around her b-day we took away paci at naps. By 13 months we took it away at night and she was just fine. I think it was Adam and I who were more scared about our good night sleeps.

Will never took a paci. I tried to give him one, several times, when he was an infant but he never took it. I took nap time bottles away after a year but he still gets one at bedtime. I'm thinking I should take that away soon too.

He never took a paci or a bottle. So no troubles getting rid of them, LOL. Big troubles with me trying to leave him for more than a couple hours, though.

No bottles since 12 months. She rarely takes a paci now. Not too worried about it since it's only a nap times if I'm not around and when she's really tired.

Keelan gave up the paci on his own before 4 months, I can't remember exactly when. He never really took bottles, so he didn't miss them when I threw them away.

yep, she's been off the bottle since 10 months (all on her own) during the day, and off it at night since 11 months (uses a sippy still though)

the paci is a work in prgress but I think we are making good head way with it

Mya only ever got bottles when she was with a sitter and she completely stopped taking bottles around 9 or 10 months. She got BM or formula in a sippy cup or her sitter would spoon it to her.

Now the paci is another story!! She is soooo attached to that thing. Some days I just want to chuck it out the window and be done with it but I can't stand to hear her screaming and crying for it. She doesn't get it during the day at her sitters and will actually put it away when she walks in but she looks for it and expects it once I get her in the car. She actually searches for her paci in her sleep. LOL I wanted her off of it at 1 but now my goal is 2, hopefully before then.

Nope, he dumped the paci on his own at around 3 months. And never took bottles.

Evan still has both. He gets one bottle of milk first thing in the morning because he refuses to drink milk from a cup. We'll see what our dr says about him not having any milk at his 18 month appointment in a few weeks; if she okays no milk, then we'll get rid of the bottles then. It will be easy to get rid of them, I think, we just have to decide to do it.

He is addicted to his soother. When he's not teething, he only gets it at nap and bedtime. I'll wait until his eye teeth are in before we even think about taking it from him. Hopefully by 2 it'll be gone.

The paci and good. Our goal was to limit to night and naps only and we've succeeded. Because she still wakes at night I am worried that if she didn't reach for her paci, she might end up waking up entirely and causing problems.

She never liked her paci so we have never had one but she is still on the bottle. She does not like her milk in the sippy cup, only water. Sigh...going to have to work on that soon.

She's only had a bottle a handful of times, but he paci is another story too. She loves that dang thing! She's my first to be so attached to one, so I haven't started taking it away, but I'm slowly hiding them so they aren't visible during the day. She can have one for naps and bedtime and I'll keep one in my purse for when we're out, but I'd like to limit daytime use now.

Nattie still takes 1 bottle before bed but uses regular cups during the day.
I wish there was a pack to get rid of. She stopped using one around 6 months and sucks her thumb instead.
