I had a traumatic time weaning my first child, took what seemed like days. But a tip from a daycare provider for my second was a great help...she suggested that I always hold my baby and feed her the bottle, even if she is old enough to hold her own bottle. This worked well, because, after she finished her bottle, she would just go to sleep, never having had held her bottle and sucked it while she slept, made it no chore at all when she turned one and could drink from her cup..the bottle was easily forgotten.
