Battle of the Bottle

My 21 month old is hopelessly addicted to her bottle. She’s only allowed one for naps and bedtime. Her face and actions are hilarious and adorable when you bring the bottle ’round! She’s always thrilled to see it. 

The doctor said to break her! She said its bad for her teeth but her real reason was because my monkey had gained some extra weight! Her daddy and I are both overweight and I’m paranoid that she thinks we don’t care enough about our girl to watch her weight gain. Miss S (my daughter) was slightly underweight for several months of her infancy. I think she’s caught up. 

The doc said to just take it from her. I’m not willing to go cold turkey, and I’m sure Doc McJudgey couldn’t handle my milk-a-holic herself! I want my monkey healthy and to have good teeth, but we have a hard enough time getting her to sleep with a bottle, I’m not ready to try it without. Yet. 

Have any tips on the Battle of the Bottle? Any interesting stories to share? 

Diaper Duty

I once picked up my then very tiny human and thought her sleeper looked bulky. Well, I unsnapped her sleeper and in my attempt to change her diaper without her peeing all over the both of us, I’d managed to slide the clean one over top of the old one. 

And forgot to move the old one before putting the sleeper back on. 

Luckily only hubby was there to witness!
