When should my baby be off the bottle?

A: 

I believe each family should choose the best time for themselves and their baby. That said, bottles do begin to cause “bucking” of the permanent teeth at age 3 years or so, and using a bottle beyond age 1 can lead to cavities in some babies.

Whenever you do it, consider transitioning to a spill-proof sippy cup, as they’re far less messy than a traditional cup.
