  • LOL I can just imagine! Try not to react and they might get bored of it.

  • My 27mo son still does this. I do hope it is a phase

  • dont worry this is what kids do

  • there are some good comments here

  • How are they going now?

  • Just a firm “we don’t spit” an take their bottle off them. Hopefully the phase passes.

  • sounds like they have discovered a new trick and will hopefully stop when they find another one

  • How are they now? Hopefully they will grow out of it.

  • i hope its all worked out

  • kids go through many stages this is just one of them. Its fun.

  • Good luck and I hope that they stop soon

  • It’s just a phase the little ones are going through. To them, it’s a game. I’d tell them spitting is yucky and remove their water bottles from them when it happens. They’ll grow out of it – and move on to picking their noses and eating the boogers, or sticking their fingers in their mouths and making funny faces, etc.

  • I think its just a phase that their going through because I have 21 month old twins who do exactly the same, they drink out of a water bottle and think its funny to spit at each other and on the ground.

  • try some good distractions and maybe not feed them close together? i admire you bringing up twins

  • I am sure they are just having fun, say no to their behaviour, and try to distract them with something else.
