Please don't judge us too bad!
Our son will only drink his bottle 1. on his own 2. laying down in his crib. he typically drinks it and throws it aside when he is finished. we have tried letting him have it before bed - but since he was about 5 months old and able to hold his own bottle - he wanted to be alone and not held. which is sad... i can't cuddle with him - mr. independent.
so my question is -- how do i get him off the bottle... i let him have them for naps and bedtime. i am going to try to cut the nap ones and keep the bed time ones. i am going to try sippy cups with milk for during the day and hopefully it will transition the night one to a sippy cup out of bed - brush teeth and then bed.
the only thing is - if he will not drink his milk in sippy - he can not have other dairy bc he has cow's milk protein intolerance and is on Neocate.
his teeth that came in have little yellow spots (he got 2 different IV antibiotics every 8hrs for 48hours right after birth and he's had fevers) i just don't want his teeth to rot. the top ones coming down now do not look that great (although i can't see that well bc he won't let me look!)
any advice is appreciated. thanks!
