Staying strong

With the New Year there were three things that I wanted to get accomplished with Ethan.

1. Change from formula to milk--Done! That wasn't hard. He is a milk baby all the way and doesn't even notice the difference.

2. Change from baby food to table foods--Ethan did that for me by protesting baby food so no fuss there.

3. This is the KILLER, weaning from the bottle. --I have him doing good during the day but I have no clue how I am going to get him to stop on his morning and night time bottles. I have tried giving him his sippy cup at those times and he will push it away and won't calm down till I get a bottle. We are going to need to work a little harder!

Congratulations so far! We'll be going through this next month. My plan of action is to offer a bottle with water in it (I'd even try adding a little lemon juice -- but Julie loves that, so it probably would backfire) along with a sippy cup with milk. Water helped get her off the middle-of-the-night feedings.
