So I started thinking how are we going to do this??????
This week I had rearranged the kitchen. That involved packing up the bottles and moving in the sippy cups that use to be in the pantry into the cabinets to take the bottles place. I then saw some 11oz bottles and thought these are nice. I will just keep these out for bedtime and pack the rest up. The 11oz bottles also come with a different/fast flow nipple. Well, as we started giving her those bottles we notice she wasn't keeping it in her mouth and continuing to suck but was using it more like a sippy cup. I thought oh good! This will get her use to more of a "sippy cup" feel. We continued for a few days then I switched it up again...
I then changed those bottle nipples to sippy cup nipples that look like bottle nipples! It looks like a bottle and feels like a bottle but is 100% a sippy cup in disguise!!!! She then did awesome and has been doing awesome with them.
Next change will be replacing that nipple with more of a real sippy cup nipple but as of 3 nights ago I can honestly say "JACIE IS NO LONGER TAKING BOTTLES" As happy as I am to be done with that change I am sad to say goodbye once again to another part of her babyhood!
