What we did was switch his formula/milk to a sippy cup at meal times and put water in his bottle for naps and bedtime. It gave him the incentive to use the sippy cup for "the good stuff" at meal times and we avoided the potential for bottle rot at bedtime. Bottle rot is when babies drink milk or formula before they go to sleep without having their teeth/gums cleaned so the milk pools in their teeth, leading to tooth decay.
