While Theo is now a seasoned sippy cup user, Iíve continued to give him a bottle of milk in the morning and before bed. Itís part of our routine. Itís comforting. It totally relaxes him.
But yesterday he broke the rules. Theo shimmied off my lap mid-snuggle, took the bottle, tipped it up with one hand, and chugged the milk like a mini frat boy at a college party. After several gulps, he proceeded to lay on the floor with his head propped up on his stuffed hippo. He chugged more with his free hand behind his head.
Ok, then. I think this is a big fat red flag: No more bottle!
