  • My 4 year old is still in diapers. Kids train at different ages. As for the bottle, I do think that is not good; especially for her teeth. I guess they will just learn the hard way.

  • Most celebrities don't really "raise" their kids. They hire full time nannies.

  • Britney Spears also still gives her 3 year old a pacifier.
    When you see pictures of him out with his dad he doesn't ever have one and seems happy, but when he's out with her it's always in his mouth.

  • I think different strokes for different folks...If it works for them who am I to judge.

  • Why are we judging how celebities raise their children, no one on CM likes to be judged on how they raise their children.

    Because it's fun! The diaper one is pushing it, my mom just told me her friends grandson is finally potty trained...he's 5. Soooo I don't really know what to say about that!

  • lol My son was on a paci til he was 3 1/2, only when he sleep or needed to get to sleep after 1 1/2 but I didn't like that sooooo with my 2nd one she hit 13 mos and hadn't dropped the bottle habit but could and would drink from a sippy but would cry sometimes for her bottle so i got rid of every last bottle, did not give in and that kicked the habit fast. Its a bad habit in my opinion. But each parent can deal with taht in thier own way and if they want thier child to have the bottle still thats thier choice.

  • It's their children...it's their right to raise them however they choose. I'm sure that Suri won't walk down the aisle at her wedding with a bottle sticking out of her mouth, and I'm sure Violet won't go to college with a Pampers diaper.
