When to Stop My Toddler from Bottle Feeding?

I don't really remember when exactly did my two other kids stop bottle feeding. I just knew that when they started to attend school, they no longer care to ask. But my toddler who is now 3 years and 4 months old can hardly live a day without drinking his milk in the bottle and still ask for about 2 to 3 during bedtime.

According to most of the articles I read, weaning from a bottle should begin at age 1 and if beyond that, there's a possibility of tooth damage or excessive consumption of milk that will eventually lead to obesity. This may be true to other races like kids in The US or other countries with different body metabolism but here in the Philippines, I know of kids enjoying their bottles up to age 5.
