Oh, and I stink at this parenting thing sometimes!  The no bottle situation didn't last very long.  Oh, well.  We will try again another day.

  1. Look at it this way, I've never seen someone go to college with his bottle in his backpack. Tomorrow is another day. Sometimes there are more important things to take care of. If another night with his bottle makes Jack happy, then so be it. You're a great Mommy Kate!

  2. My philosophy is (if it can be called that, lol) they are only little kids for a short time..I doubt he will be taking a bottle at 15 :) I don't rush any stages in their life!! He is just too cute; cozy him up with his bottle and rock that baby to sleep :)

  3. My son is 14 months and everyone is telling me he should be off a bottle by now. He's only a baby once!! Let him be a baby! I'm due to have a baby in july so by than I will take him off of it but I'm not pushing it. If that's what comforts him I would be a mean mom to take it away.

  4. I am a teacher. I have never seen a kid carrying a bottle at school. No worries.

  5. My 2 1/2 year old refused to drink milk once I took her bottle away. She would drink in from a bottle but never from a cup. She has probably only had about 15 oz of milk in a year and a half. Who knows if I would have been better off letting her keep the bottle. At 2 1/2 she is still totally addicted to her pacifier. I finally last week made her keep it in her bed. But, it has been rough!

  6. I am the oldest of 3 siblings and had a bottle at bed or when I was upset/sick until I was 5--- I ended up going to college on a full ride and now am a cancer research scientist--- In my opinion I turned out ok, so don't worry about it with your little one!

  7. My son, Brooks, was born the same day as Jack and hasn't given up his night time milk in a bottle. You aren't alone!!!

  8. Christmas is the perfect time to get rid of the bottle. My three year old loved her morning bottle, and I didn't have the heart to take it from her as she was so deeply sad every time I tried. So, at Christmas time, I suggested that we leave it under the tree for the Baba (her name for it) Elves. The Baba Elves pick up 'big girl/boy''s babas and leave a toy in exchange. I took her out to the toy store and let her pick one toy that she LOVED (within $$ reason) and then we wrote a little note to the Bab Elves and left it under the tree with the toy wish. She left her baba, the elves left her chosen toy. Win-win. It worked for us:)

  9. Don't fret about it! It won't last forever and it shouldn't effect his adult teeth. It brings him as much comfort at my children's lovies (blankies, pillow cases) and there is nothing wrong with that!

  10. We took Sam's bottles away when he was not quite 2 1/2. We just explained that they were tired and needed naps. Then two weeks later we took the soothers away too. They also needed naps. It worked for us but I think Sam was ready. If Jack isn't ready yet then don't sweat it.

  11. You do what your heart leads you to do :) I won't tell you how long our little guy had a paci (mainly because of the nay sayers), but he had it as long as he needed it :) You are a great mom. Do things according to how they work for you & your family, no one else :) (((hugs)))

  12. I was HIGHLY impressed with all the changes you were attempting in one week! The diet enough would be enough to send me to the looney bin, much less moving a baby to a big boy bed ANNND attempting to take away the bottle. Congratulations, you maintain your sanity and human status (we can attempt hero status when our kids go to college, right?!).

  13. I won't judge you for keeping Jack on the bottle, if you won't judge me for having a 3 year old in a crib! LOL ;) Yep....sad, but true. Planning on a twin bed after Christmas. My child loves his bed.

  14. Kate, I feel each child will give it up at the time it is meant to be. I never judge a mom's choice od parenting. I had many people judge me for allowing my babies to sleep with me, BUT I would never change a day of those snuggles. Besides he is so cute how could you say No to him? HA.

  15. I love (and second) Alexandra's comment and so many others on this post. You don't stink at parenting. You have been through enough to know what really matters. A bottle until he is ready to part with it is one of those things that REALLY matters to him and really doesn't matter in the big scheme of his life. Keep following your heart and just love those babies of yours.

  16. The person in need of leads must decide upon an amount of time that
    they are willing to devote to leads throughout the day in order to help
    narrow down the different lead options available to them. Some lead
    options require more time than others, so it is important to have a
    pretty solid idea of what amount of time is available. Keeping in mind
    how much each type of lead will cost up front, monthly, and with each
    individual lead is also important.
