Pacifiers, Bottles, and Breastfeeding: Easy Ways to Wean

Toddlers who drink from a bottle for too long tend to consume more milk than necessary, says pediatrician Laura Jana, M.D. This may lead to loss of appetite, consumption of too many calories from liquid, or cavity risk.

When to wean: Between 12 and 15 months, says Dr. Jana, which is when babies can drink well enough from a sippy cup. If you wait more than 18 months, the bottle will become a habit and your child will cling to it even harder.

How to do it: Introduce the sippy between 6 and 9 months — with milk or formula and not just water or juice. Around 12 months, once your child has mastered the cup, tell your child that she is a big kid and that she gets to use a cup instead of a bottle all the time now. If you can’t go cold turkey, eliminate one bottle-feeding at a time, starting with the bedtime bottle.
