It's very ingrained in my 2 year old's routine and it's very much a comfort object. He is autistic so big routine changes don't work well for him and he already has the stress of Mommy and Daddy not being together right now plus we have the new baby coming in a few months. So with all the moving around I kind of wanted to keep as much of his routine consistent as possible. I don't want to stress him out to the point of self injury and I'm really worried about taking the bottle away from him just to pull it out for the new baby in like 2 months.
So I just don't see the your a big boy now talk working but I know I have to take it away eventually.
Any ideas on doing this transition slowly like over 6 months? I'm serious though a talking to him about how bottles are for babies or the bottle fairy won't work.
