We stopped at 11 months, we were lucky and it was no problem for him. I wouldnt worry too much yet, just keep cutting back and maybe pick a time to stop completely.
Natalie was 13 months, Olivia was 15ths, and we are yet to know with Dominic:)
He's down to three bottles right now.
Most of my friends/family have bottles for their LO's at 18months and beyond.
1st pregnancy: m/c began 1/12/09 d&c 1/13/09 8wks. Baby stopped growing at about 6wks.

Baby #3: due July 15, 2014
Stella was down to just a morning and nighttime bottle when she turned one, but those have been the hardest to break. I just posted this morning about being on day 2 with no bottles, wish me luck at bedtime, haha!! At her 18 month well visit last week the pedi suggested we try to eliminate the bottles, but she didn't seem too concerned about it.

*Kingston*:Not yet! He still gets one before his nap and at bedtime.
Maybe it's a Gabe thing haha....
My Gabe loves his bottles, and has to have one before both naps and bedtime. It's his comfort, and I'm not gonna take it away from him, just yet anyways. He can't figure out sippy's yet, and I'm done stressing over trying to get him to only use a sippy.
Dreamsicle23:I dropped them cold turkey a little before 10 months. It was pretty easy because I don't think he had time to really grow attached to it.
This exactly! We did get the sippy cups that had softer tops so it was a bit more similar to a bottle than going directly to a straw. Now he loves the straw and cup though!
Started cutting back around 10'ish months. He got a bottle a bedtime, then we decreased the ounces he got. I think he sorta cut back himself... Think it was just around 1year when he was off the bottles.
The formula was so expensive I was happy to kick that habit
Daytime bottles went at 10 months, nighttime at 11 months with no issues!
