At 15 months you could also phase out the bottles quite quickly - have you thought about how she might 'wean' from the bottles too ? It may be quite a short phase of bottles as a transitional thing, because you could also have weaned her directly to 'family food' - and normal cups with water or milk....

I know milk is a really great convenience food.... my that age my kids had learnt to manage a normal straw, and I found that convenient UHT packs of single serve plain milk were a fine emergency backup...

Our babies at work are weaned from bottles in the childcare setting from around 12 months, although I am sure most of them are still having bottles morning and evening at home...
Breastmilk - the ultimate 'brain food'!!!
