In brief: Throw them out
The easiest way to eliminate bottles is to simply get rid of them. Babies are creatures of habit and most will not change without having it changed for them. Many babies will take juice or water in sippies but simply refuse milk unless its in a bottle because its their habit.
If a baby can use a sippy, eliminate bottles and only give milk in sippies. Most babies will transition in a few days.

In brief: Make it boreing
The idea of change is a bit much to some kids.
When trying to draw your child into new ideas you need to make the old ones less rewarding. If you commit to putting water in a kids bottle rather than what they expect, they must choose whether they like the bottle more than what they're drinking. Water is boreing, they'll toss it aside unless truely attached. Put the good stuff in sippy cups.
