Congratulations on breastfeeding for a year!!! Woo Hoo! Don't forget that breastmilk does not lose any of it's amazing properties after a year so if you want to continue there are aditional pluses to that as well (Big time cancer preventor).
Now for your question, whatever you do do NOT introduce a bottle at this point. It is recomended that a baby not have a bottle after 1 year. Go right to the sippy cup and skip the bottles. Most times it is easier to switch to the sippy because they like the newness. Good Luck!

thank you for your reply that sounds intresting mamal..i guess that means i will have 2 catch my 2 year old ( who was put on bottle after 3 months ) and hide his beloved bot bot..!!! could be a very vocal few months ahead.!!
Will a sipping cup comfort my baby at nights..???

Breastfeeding can drain your body and that is why you need to make sure to eat properly and drink often. They seem like little hoovers sometimes.

Well done with all the breast-feeding! Weaning is something that is very individual - so i would recommend you do what ever works best for you! If you want any further support there is a breast feeding group over at http://my.bounty.com/forums/ if you want more advice. Also I would check with your local doctor as there are often local breatfeeding support groups in your local community, where you can meet with other mums going through the same experiences as you! I am going to one in my local area now, and we all breastfeed together and it is great to all get together! Plus your doctor/health visitor will be able to give you any further advice depending on your babies weight and development. Hope thats all helpful, good luck with it all! Xxx
