Finally off the bottle - Small is growing up!!

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

Finally off the bottle - Small is growing up!!

Over the last few nights, I've noticed that Small has been taking aaagess with her evening bottle - it looked like she'd "lost" her sucking reflex. So last night I gave her a cup of milk at bedtime which she chugged. She knocked it back, climbed down to do her teeth and then indicated it was time to get into the cot.

So - I have packed up the bottles and associated paraphernalia and put it all in the attic for No 2 (if there ever is one.)

I feel a bit sad - its the end of her babyhyood - but she led the way - as usual. I just found it interesting that she just suddenly (well, over the course of a few weeks) seemed to make heavy weather of sucking and went to drinking instead.

Its so odd to have a little girl rather than a baby! I feel a bit bereft but I guess its better for her to be trailblazing than us having to coax her off the Avent at 5 years old!!!

Lin, how old is Small?

Just out of interest.

What age did other LOs switch to just cups?
Mum to Roo and Roolet, two lovely boys.
Roo is a graduate of the school of BLW!
Roolet is a fresher - starting in February!

Small is just over 17 months.

I ought to add that it is a fixed-spout, free flow sippy cup - she's still a bit spill-prone with an open cup so we stick to mealtimes for that!

Actually - that has made me think of something....
