Re: Getting off the bottle, cold turkey style?
Holy cow. We went cold turkey when ODD was about 1. I will never, EVER do that again. It was the longest 3 days of my life. The crying, OH, the crying. We just thought it was something we HAD to do. In hindsight, I would have let her keep her bottle for awhile longer and then introduced a sippy when she was older and could understand.
Don't let other people make you question your parenting. Sure, if he's open to using something else then that's fine too, but if he wants his bottle for comfort there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.
