Recently the same old question seems to be popping up.
'Is Leo still having a bottle of milk to go to bed with?'
The answer to this question is yes, Leo still has a bottle of milk to go to bed with.
Up until this week I didn't think there was any harm in this at all? Leo has been cutting down on milk intake all on his own, he has cut out all of his feeds during the day and this has been replaced with his juice cup, which he absolutely loves.
I figure that he will let me know when he no longer needs a bottle of milk to go to bed with. He is only just coming up 15 months old and I am not about to rush him into something that he is not ready for.
People's main concern seems to be Leo's teeth and how they may alter if he continues to drink from his bottle. I could understand this if maybe he was having every drink out of a bottle, but this is not the case.
He is simply my baby boy, who enjoys a relaxing bottle of milk before he retires to bed for the night.
Is there anything really wrong with this? And what is the guideline age that a baby/toddler should no longer have a bottle of milk on any account?
Until Leo let's me know otherwise I will continue to give him this little luxury. But then maybe it is just me clinging onto those few little signs that my little baby, is still my little baby.
It does beg the question though, what age were your little one's when they stopped drinking from a bottle and how did you aid the transition?
