SO Braden is almost 2 years old, wow! Working on a few things to help him "grow up." So I am publicly admitting to giving my son a bottle at nap and bed time...STILL. It was just so easy, he was the greatest sleeper as a toddler! So we are a few days into this and it is going quite well, yeah. I was worried for nothing. Mainly my reason is that I work 40+ hours a week and am not home with Braden in the day time and I never wanted my babysitters to have to go through this transition.
Next step...toddler bed. Have it. Tried it. Went back to crib. Will try again after no bottle sinks in. Never try these two together, dah!
But I am happy to report I have never had to break any other bad habbits like the pacifier (luckily braden never would take one), stuffed animal, or really anything else...just the dang bottle.
