I'm not going to. And you can call me every mean name you can.
My daughter gets 4-5 bottles per day. She sits in my lap for her bottle feedings, and I'm the one who holds the bottles. When she is done, the bottle goes into the kitchen sink. She doesn't walk around with them all day long. She doesn't take them to bed with her. She does take a sippy, but will only drink water from it.
I understand what the AAP recommends, but I'm going to wait until closer until 18 months before weaning her completely. The only time she and I get to cuddle is when she's having a bottle...call me selfish, but I'm not in a rush to end those cuddle times! My baby is SUPER busy, and doesn't sit still for long periods, except for when she has a bottle!
Anyone else in my shoes?

My daughter is 17 mo and we just got her off of the bottle about a month ago. She was very resistant to using a sippy cup and we didn't force it on her.
