Bottle-over two
Pacifier-over two or three.



I had a pacifier until I was three and I have perfect teeth.

My oldest had a bottle until she was almost two and honestly it was a pain in the ass. None of my kids every took a pacifier. My youngest is now 11 months and we just took all the bottles away tonight. She is doing perfect and I dont forsee any issues honestly.

my son is 14 months and still gets his bottle at night. . He's a picky eater so i give him formula before bed so he gets his nutrients. And since he drinks more out of the bottle than the sippy i give him the bottle cause i know he needs it. I'll take the bottle away for good when i know he's getting enough thruout the day

I used a pacifier until I was 3 too, lol.
My teeth are all straight.



What's the big issue about the bottle?
I mean I know it's got to go sometime.
But she doesn't get to lay in bed with it or anything, it's just a comfort thing for her and the sippy flow is sometimes too fast and she chokes.

DD is 20 months and she only uses a paci at nighttime. Personally I want the damn thing gone by her 2nd birthday.
Thankfully she gave up the bottle at 11 months no problem.



There was a five year old at DD's pedi office and he said no joke "mom, may I have my pacifier please". He didn't call it a paci, or a wawee or any short term for it. I was just like :shock:

I think its a baby vs kid thing. Bottle usually equals baby and cup equals big boy/girl in most minds

I weaned my daughter from the bottle at 2.5. She is 3 today and she still takes a paci. It was easy weaning her from the bottle but I still haven't had any success with the paci. IMO she's way too old for a paci but she'll scream & cry until I give it too her.

I have no issues with a bottle until they are over two. My daughter gets a bottle about half the time and a sippy about half the time. She's almost 18 months.



I know people say that bottles cause teeth issues and everything. Well it may if you give it to them at night. But you don't do that.



Baby v. Kid thing makes sense. As I would probably balk at a two or three year old with a bottle. IMO once the kid is over two they shouldn't have one. But hey if another parent sees fit that their kid gets a bottle after two I'm fine with it. Not my child :)

I wouldn't say it's sucky, but if she uses a sippy fine I would personally toss the bottles. No point anymore and it's a battle u won't have to fight later on
