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.
