Obviously, you are not over reacting if bottle rot is a true reality, KWIM?

Kelly, you're doing the right thing!!! Good for you! Maddie was easy to break of the bottle, but that was because she was already using the binky for soothing at night. I hope tonight goes smoothly! If she gives you a hard time, it will only be for a couple of nights.. you can do it friend!!!!!!! :)

Good luck Kelly :-))


Kids can be so different.... salem hated pacifiers and bottles, I had to use the sippy like teats on his bottles, so we didn't really have to transition at all!!!


Selim... ahhhhh.. loves his pacifier, and his bottle.. but he also uses a sippy cup for water and juice and milk during the day.. the bottle is only for bedtime cuz he falls asleep...


I think I'll stop the night bottle when he's about 1 or so.. he's 8 1/2 months now...


I know how hard it can be... my sister used a bottle, be it empty or full as a pacifier to soothe herslef, she was old enough to be walking and just had it hanging like an elephant's trunk!! Till one day, I think she was 2, when my mom convinced her to throw them all away cuz she's a big girl now..... she threw them alright, then proceeded to throw a tantrum!!!!


Let us know how it goes!!
