So I have a question, in the fascinating vein of similar questions such as "How do I trim Adelay's toenails without injury to her or myself?" If you don't have kids or came here to read something funny, you should probably move along for today. Because today's topic is, "Is there a certain point at which a toddler should be completely weened from bottle to sippy cup, and if so when is it?"
I've already mentioned my rebellious reluctance to ween her from the comfort of milk in bed, despite my pediatrician's dire warnings of cavities. So I am just being stubborn again here about the bottle thing in general? She does use sippy cups, and in fact exclusively sippy cups, during the day. Really, the only time the bottles get broken out is at nap and bedtime... Or if all the sippy cups are dirty at meal or snack time.
We've tried giving her cups in bed, too, but she really gets upset, and the very mention of a "ba-ba" settles her down so well that it seems pointless to force the issue. So I guess it's a comfort thing at nighttime, for both her and us. I've just kind of figured, "If it's working, why mess with it?" Am I being lazy, or does it not really matter? If it does matter, how should I go about the removal of the bottles?
