Last night PiggyBeng was in a conference call with his sister (my SIL) who has just given birth to baby girl. We chatted for a while and she showed us the little cutie on the webcam too.
As we spoke, Darrius was drinking his milk (using his bottle) on the sofa behind us and SIL asked what was he doing? Upon hearing that, I told Darrius to hurry up as he has been drinking like 30 minutes but the bottle is still half full! SIL then asked why is he still using the bottle? Both PiggyBeng and myself laughed and told her that he is still a baby! 😛
SIL said her 3rd kid who is 2.5 years old already ditched the bottle since she turned 2! Oh dear! Shame on Darrius!!! She suggested that we should cut the teat in front of him! Will that works?
I have wanted to to wean Darrius off the bottle for a long time but all my attempts were furtile as this boy is too lazy and he will come up with lots of funny acts or reasons so that he can still go with the bottle! When I put milk in the cup, he will complain that it is hot or he will use his fingers to stir the milk or he will drip the milk every where till I am so fed up with him and pour his milk back into the bottle and hand it back give him!
Another problem is, if without the bottle he may even take a longer time to finish up his milk! He already need 30 mins to drink his milk each morning and that is the max time he has! I can’t imagine if I serve his milk in a cup, he can finish or not! He may refused his milk altogether!
