I never broke my dd from the bottle and I never weaned my son from the breast. Oh and I never potty trained my kids either
I never understood breaking your kids from bottles, pacis, loveys, ect. That just seems cruel to me. They're a comfort object for a reason! Why take it away at some arbitrary age? If you think about it, when's the last time you saw a high schooler sucking on a bottle or paci?
I never bottle broke my dd. She gave up her bottle at almost 3 and went to a sippy cup with no issue. She's 12 and still uses one from time to time. (Her teeth are fine) My son breast fed until he was almost 6 then he told me he was finished. He didn't need boo boo anymore. No tears, no hurt. I let them decide when they were ready to move on.
As for potty training. I waited until they showed discomfort in pooping on themselves. When that happened I broke out the potty, let them run nakey and nature took it's course. No fighting, no tears, no frustration. My dd was 3, my son was 22 months and my Ldd was 18 months.
