Im new here and looking for advice and hopefully support. I have a 22 month old daughter who refuses to drink milk out of anything but a bottle. She will drink anything else out of a sippy or straw cup or my cup except milk. Im at a loss with everything lately! Im 6 months pregnant and having massive hormonal changes. I rarely have lots of energy to keep up with her but do my best while trying to keep up with the house and cooking. I rarely get a moment to myself and feel horrid when she wants me to play with her and I turn her down. And lately she doesnt want to go to bed but plays in her crib for a good hour and a half before finally falling asleep. I just feel like Im such a horrible mother because shes still on a bottle twice a day, plays in her crib and sometimes yells and yells at me for no reason at bed time and she doesnt seem to want to learn to talk! Ive read other kids know their abc's at 2, Im lucky she says a few words. I just feel like a bad mom, other kids her age do things she isnt yet and thats probably because I dont know how to teach her. Am I holding her back keeping her my baby or will she do things when shes ready? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
