Bottles or cups!

(3 Posts)

Hi, my DS is 9 months old and has 3 bottles a day. I'm still using tommee tippee bottles with teats. He also has a sippy cup (doidy) for water at meal times. Should all his drinks be from cups/beakers? Its just dawned on me he might be too old for teats now but NHS says 12 months to be off bottles but 6 months to use cups!? Does this also mean I'm pointlessly sterilising milk bottles when I dont bother for his water cups??

Ahhh. Any help appreciated!

P.s. always been bottle fed if that makes a difference

I say bottles until 11.5/ 12 months.
Or unless he refuses the bottles.

No bottles after a year and you don't need to sterilize now. But make sure you use boiled water for the formula, that still needs to be prepared properly.
