When to stop bottle feeding my toddler

Message length 300 characters recommended

I never let my toddler use a bottle. At 11 months I took him off of the bottle and used strictly sippy cups. My doctor said using a bottle into the toddler years can be harmful for their teeth. I never had a problem switching him and plan on doing the same with my daughter.


You should stop bottle feeding at 1 year and introduce a sippy at 6 months. If they keep bottle feeding at an older age they could get crooked teeth or bottle rot
