We aren’t sure how old exactly it is when a toddler is supposed to say goodbye to bottles entirely, but we’ve let Mr. Pickles go at his pace. Today was a big day, though, and daddy took him to the store to pick out some big boy cups so we could say goodbye to his bottles at bedtime. He’s been using big boy cups for his other drinks for some time now, but definitely needed his bottle at naps and bedtime.
Needless to say, we were a little nervous about presenting him with a different cup at his bedtime (and a little sad — our baby is growing up), but he was so excited to use his new Lightning McQueen cup that he didn’t even seem to care about the missing bottle. Another milestone for the little man.
Bye bye bottles, our guy is growing up.
