Babies and their bottles!

Some tips for babies and bottles:

  • A bottle that contains any liquid other than water should not be left with children when they fall asleep
  • Drinking juice from a bottle should be avoided, it should only be offered in a cup.
  • Milk and water are the preferred drinks for young age groups.
  • No sweeteners should be added to the bottle, this can cause decay.

What age should my child give up their bottle?

Generally, you should wean your baby from a bottle around the age of one year.

How do I wean my child from their bottle?

There are two common methods:

  1. “Cold Turkey” approach
  2. Gradual approach – usually begins the day with bottles, then a sippy cup can be used during the day, followed by the last and most difficult step which is the bottle before bedtime
