Today was a big day in our house... George and Olivia didn't have a bottle all day! And, it went very smoothly :) Now, tomorrow could easily be a different story... one day they love broccoli and the next they swat at the fork if it gets near them... but we will take a successful first day.
I think babies generally loose their bottles around their first birthday, but our doctor wanted to wait until they were gestationally a year before getting rid of them completely. So, for the last few months they have had a bottle first thing in the morning, followed by three complete meals, and a bottle last thing at night. We worked in a little whole milk here and there, but the bottles were always their high calorie preemie formula. Then came Wednesday... the 15-month doctors appointment, just after their mid-April due date. Thursday and Friday we stopped the morning bottle which was easy - these kids love breakfast! But Saturday night was the big one... they also love their night time, bed time, fall asleep directly after, bottle.
YEA! It went fairly smoothly :) Fingers crossed for tomorrow night!
