We have been bottle free for a full week now!
Last Friday (June 4, 2010) morning, Liam has his bottle of milk in his high chair before daycare like he always did, completely unaware that this would be his last bottle!
I had already decided that this week of holidays would be a good time to wean him off his last two daily bottles, first thing in the morning and last thing before bed. He hasn't used a bottle during the day for a couple of weeks. So, Friday night we had a sippy cup of milk before bed and we haven't looked back.
There have been a couple of little melt downs when I hand him a sippy cup instead of a bottle when he first gets up or at bedtime, but after a moment of two when nothing else appears, he's happy to take the cup. And he settles to sleep just as easily as before.
Although it is a little sad that my baby is getting so grown up, I am thrilled to be done with bottles!
