Health Tip: Weaning Baby From a Bottle
Don't try it during stressful times

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Babies are typically ready to be weaned from a bottle at age 12 months to 18 months.

The University of California San Francisco suggests how to help wean baby:

  • Choose a time of fairly low stress, and avoid times of change such as a move or a new sibling.
  • Let your child begin using and playing with a cup, even without liquid, between ages 3 months to 6 months.
  • Between ages 8 months to 10 months, offer baby a sippy cup instead of a bottle at one of the usual smaller feedings, and continue this for a week.
  • Each week, substitute a sippy cup for a bottle at one different meal.
  • Let your child drink slowly, offering a small amount of liquid in the cup.
