  • i disagree. i BF, and my son turned one last month, and i plan to continue until he is ready to stop.

    should it be any different with a bottle? i dont think so.

  • I let my son have his bottle till he was ready to give it up. He threw it away when he was 2.5 years old. He only used it for milk in the morning and evenings. I see no problem with it.
