  • exellent super story


  • top story to read


  • i suggest cutting it down to only when he goes to bed, it seems like its comforting for him


  • Oh I think if it helps him (and you) both get a good night sleep, what is the harm. He is only getting it once a day. Some Mothers still give dummies at this age so a bottle is no problems, and he has a nice full tummy for sleep time.


  • I took it away from my kids at about two years… do it gradually, give him his cup more often until you’re down to one bottle a day (before bed was my choice) and then it hopefully will be easier to get him off that last bottle.


  • He will part with his bot when he is ready so I would not worry as he also uses a cup


  • I think with the added issuse of his autism I really wouldn’t push it with him, maybe just try to keep it to bedtimes only and then only give it to him if he asks for it.
    Good luck :) xx
