Since before he was born I have looked at time lines. When should he lay on his tummy, when should he roll over, at what age will he start eating oatmeal, when should he be walking…? These questions were answered by charts, other moms, generally just happening, or at least googled like crazy. When D-Man hit 12 months- I quit paying too much attention. All of a sudden, I realized it.
My little man is still drinking a bubba. At 14 months.
It didn’t hit me at ALL that this was a transition that I was missing. He has a TON of sippy cups. He just drinks water and very watered down juice from them. Here I am, toting around bubbas in a sweet little monkey cooler bag and grinning from ear to ear when he looks like such a big boy drinking his bubba all on his own. Ah. Duh.
It is recommended that babies lose the bottle at a year old.
Sorry buddy. You are about to go through a transition. And Mommy didn’t even mentally prepare herself.
And we just decided that the binky leaves on New Year’s Day. Poor buddy is in for quite a few months.
I guess it’s not time to tell him that Mickey Mouse isn’t real?
