I'm wondering, at the age of 19 months, is it a good time to start training my son to drink milk in cup instead of bottle? Will that deprive him of comfort, as I can see that somehow, for God knows what reason - he finds the act of sucking on nipples and pacifier very very soothing. I'm kind of reluctant to deprive him of that comfort as I'm afraid he'd be too clingy and throw tantrum all the time if he doesn't have something to comfort him. Or perhaps I'm not ready to accept the fact that my son is not a baby anymore, because as long as he's still drinking in bottles I have this feeling that he's still like a baby to me and a baby needs his mother the most. Hehe. However, whenever hubby is in in rajin mode, he'd patiently feed his son milk using cups. Nak harap mama dia, sorry naik lori lah. Yes, I don't have the patience like my hubba hub. *grin*
So in your opinion, at what age do you think it's most suitable to wean your kids from bottle?
One satisfied drinker. Haha!
Anyway, here's some info I got from Babycenter.com on the milestone for toddler's his age:
Toddlers love to feel like they're making an important contribution to any activity, and chores around the house are no exception. You may find your child's help makes chores more fun for both of you — or you may find yourself dismayed by how long it takes to get anything done. To avoid frustration, save important tasks for times when your toddler is asleep or away. When he's around, let him help with small chores like putting his plastic cup and bowl into the dishwasher, or tossing wet clothes into the dryer.
Oh my! They're so true! Irfan lovesSs helping with chores, I guess it gives him some sense of importance to be able to do grown up works, and also it made him feel all grown up to be able to do things his parents do. All the better for his mum, but well...let's just hope you continue to be hardworking until you're old oh-kay!
