BabaGate 2012



By George I think we have finally made it I am excited and I think we might have finally got it. After a week of whining torture my LDG is finally off the damn B-A-B-A. Holy nut balls I think we DID IT! She has had a love affair with Born Free Nipple Bottle for almost a year and a half and it has been torture trying to get this out of her life. LDG has been a pretty easy little chiquita but this damn bottle was giving us the run for our money. I was so trying to take it away based on some stupid baby magazine timeline I did not notice that my little one was not ready to part with it until now. We had made the attempt to remove the bottle once before and she was just not having it. Hello Rosemary's Baby it was a scary scary day.







She drinks all liquids from sippy/regular cups the only thing she loved out of her bottle was milk. Bed and nap time have been a little bit more challenging but she has "sucked it up" and she is doing a whole lot better. We are now using this sport/sippy cup contraption for her milk which she has kinda sorta been drinking from but she is using it more as something to hold onto while she rocks herself  to sleep. Hey..... I am happy we got through this hurtle without anyone/anything getting hurt. I only had to deal with more of an attitude this week but not bad at all considering I cold turkeyed her ass on the bottle. Hey I remember when I cold turkeyed my ass off cigarettes and man that sucked so I could relate. 

Below is the kind of face we have had to deal with because of  BABAGATE

You do know that if you plant the bottle in the ground a special tree will grow just for your daughter.

I gave my daughter back her bottle-Im in trouble she's going to be 2 in two months! My other kids were done at a year excatly! Its just she was so whiny with out it and when she has her bottle is the only time she relaxes for 5 min during the day, and when I tried to give her milk out of any other cup she would just chuck it clear across the room. Oh well, maybe Ill follow your lead and hold to my guns next attempt!

Your LDG has the cutest angry face I have ever seen, I just love it!! She cracks me up, look at her out walking by the stores, she's too cute and funny :)
Good job with the bottle thing, I was lucky, Liam has surrendered his already at 12 mths too!! And to think I had the other two kids drinking from theirs til they were two yrs old, live and learn ;)
