Just wondering when any of you plan on doing this or when did you do it? What techniques did you try or was it easy?

I think I might want to try a little earlier with Hannah than I did with Nicole. I think Nicole was 18 months or so when she finally gave it up. She hated sippies with a passion and still will only drink out of the ones with the soft tops. I tried early with her at seven months to see if she would get the hang of it but she never has. I gave Hannah a soft/hard top KWIM the other day and she did pretty well with it besides not being able to hold it up. It seems though Nicole just wasnt ready til then cuz it was a hard time before she actually gave it up. I just think she wasnt ready. Hopefully Hannah will be. I think around year is when I will start weening her but not fully.

We did not use bottles to much. It was more of a transition from the breast to the sippy. It was a hard one. Carly was around 18 months when we were getting strict about it. I would tell her that she was a big girl and that sippys are for big girls. This mad her m.a.d. I remember her throwing the cup after that comment one day and her telling me that she was a baby.

I started Cassidy on a sippy at 5 months, the same time she started eating cereal. She liked the novelty of it then ,and we were able to completely wean her by 12 months. She still gets 1 bottle of formula during the night if she wakes up, but never during the day, and she couldn't care less.

Sam took easily to the Nuby sippy cup at 11 months and we were totally bottle free at 13 months.

What we did was start switching them out one bottle at a time. We started with is mid-afternoon bottle, then 4-5mid-morning, then lunch, then morning, last to go was bedtime. I think we did this every 4-5 days.

And we did the same thing at 15 months switching over to whole milk.
