We were slightly late at getting my son off the bottle - he stopped having milk in a bottle at 17 mos. But he continued having hot water in a bottle at his bedtime, and he still does at 26 mos. I don't think it is bad for him - he never has milk or anything but water in it, it relaxes him since it is hot, he only has 1 a day - at bedtime - and it helps him stay hydrated. All the rest of the time he drinks from a cup w/ a straw, so it isn't like he is dependant on a bottle. And water won't rot his teeth. And he doesn't fall asleep w/ it in his mouth - he actually finishes it and places it on his bedside table.
So, is there anything wrong w/ this, or can I feel okay in allowing it?
