I'm a stay at home mom while my fiance works sometimes 15 hour days. We have a handsome, sociable, and wild 1 year old boy named Samuel

Weaning a toddler off the bottle

My son is one and a half and is still drinking out of a bottle. Granted, it's only at night and before his daytime nap. Other than those times, he drinks solely out of a 360 cup. I tried getting him off bottles at 1 and sent him to bed with a sippy, but omg that was the worst bedtime fiasco I ever experienced and my resolve lasted maybe an hour before I caved and gave him his bottle.

Luckily, after stopping my birth control after a year (I was told it was the wrong kind for me to be on), I got pregnant.
