I'm trying to think of how she understood what he said. Maybe he said autistic people generally have a mental capacity of a 2 yr old, and she just turned it around and took it out of context.

even if that were true... what does that have to do with him still using a bottle?

That is one of the most stupid things Ive heard. She just doesnt want to have to deal with people. Hell my son was on a bottle at 2 or PT and you just tell people to f**k off if they have an opinion about it.

I don't really see how it's anyone's business what she chooses to do with her kid. Granted she should stop giving him juice if he had bottle rot but that doesn't necessarily mean that she has to stop giving him a bottle.

Autistic people tend to be very bright so i still dont see how she would have gotten that conclusion

That's like saying people with cancer tend to recover.



Some people with autism have genius IQs. Some people with autism have the mind of a five year old. It all varies.

Definitely not true and doesn't sound like something any doctor would say. My two year old is so smart and sneaky it just amazes me sometimes. lol He's been using a real cup for a while now but we never used bottles because he was EBF. He's not potty trained yet though.

Yeah Autism does not equal 2 year old mental capacity....the f**k?




Maybe red bottom is just ignorant to what autism really is..hopefully.



Also just to throw this out there...sometimes doctors are full of shit...it happens
