 Can`t believe it... dropped the bottle!

I was soooo scared to drop the bottle as DS uses it as a soother and will suck on it long after it`s done. He was still on 3 bottles a day until today. I had always set daylight savings as my deadline for some reason, figuring it gives me 2 months til YDS comes along and by then DS won`t be jealous of the bottle if we use them.

Anyhow I told him a couple of times yesterday that all the bottles were going bye bye today and he could have his milk in new big boy cups. Well this morning when I showed up in his room with the cup he just kept repeating (and did this all day) `new`, `cup` and waving bye bye and saying `bottle` and when I say the bottles are all gone he says `baby`(because they`re for babies) and he proudly said `boooy`all day cuz he`s a big boy!

Not a single tear or issue at all! And he didn`t refuse to drink, on the contrary kept asking for more in his cups all day and ate less... lol!

Yes but check out the age diff. in our kids! I would have let DS go til 2 with the bottle if not for YDS coming. Your son likely still needs to suck/comfort.

Great job!!

I hope it goes as well for us. YDD is about the same age as yours, and still gets a bedtime bottle. We're on our last can of powder, it's a smaller one that I had kicking around, and I'd decided, that's it. I was wondering how it would go, so I'm thinking if I follow your style, and talk about bye bye bottle, perhaps that might work...hmmm.
