Omg, where do I start ....7 years old with a bottle ?!' Ahhhhhh ! You were right in every way to take away her bottle at 4 because...I see so many kids with bottles at 4 and 5 come into our office with bottle rot and the teeth are pushed foward from it , it's pretty much has the same effect as a pacifier so I dont understand why her mom doesn't know that , she's a big girl now , but my sister was still wearing pull ups at 7 so I can't say anything lol , but maybe try not to let your DD see her with it, tell your stepdaughter if she wants her bottle to go in another room until she's finished and distract your DD its going to be tough , but id make sure she doesn't see her with it ....is her bottle only for night time of throughout the day ?

Quoting Mrs.Gray♥:" WOW he is OKAY with his seven year old being on a bottle? No way. Are you SURE you want to be with him? ... [snip!] ... to him how it will mess up her teeth and how expensive it will be to fix them? Wow. My mind is completely blown right now."


Fix them? That's IF she doesn't lose them all...

His reasoning is that we always try to change rules around when she's here and it just causes her to want to go back to her mom. This time she's only here for maybe 2 months and he says its pointless to take it away because the mom will give it right back. I'm just concerned about my daughter.. Why do I have to make my 2 year old suffer for a 7 year old, you know?

if you must allow her to have it at bedtime then make sure she is in bed and not in view of your child.....that situation is utterly ridiculous & your SO is being irrational to allow it to continue.

Make him take her to the pedi or dentist to discuss it.. If he still sides with the bio mom.. .well he's stupid:) 7 with a bottle is just plain crazy... fill it full of sugary shit at night... that's neglectful parenting in my opinion. How sad:(

f**k this shit. DH and I would be arguing about this every f**king day if it was me.



Your child should absolutely NOT have to suffer because of someone else's poor parenting decisions and your DH should be supportive of that.



It's your house, your rules.

I really don't know how you will make your daughter understand that she to old for a bottle but her 7 yr old sister gets one. Her mother has issues! And I guess I'm a horrible parent for taking my sons bottle away at a yr! Do u have a custody agreement with her? Of so she can't refuse to let you guys have her for not giving her a bottle. Maybe when the 7yr old comes out you can try to talk I her ant let her know its unacceptable to have a bottle at that age

Your house, your rules. It would be different if it weren't for the betterment of the child who is not biologically yours, but a 7 year old with a bottle is insane. Let alone a 7 year old who needs a bottle of nesquick to go to bed.



It sounds like the mother feels guilty for being absent in the bottle stage if her daughters life and is subsequently trying to relive it. Which is a pay geological nightmare you don't want to have to correct.



Someone needs to say something to this woman.

If it were me, I'd be spamming the whole family, SO included, with info about the damage they're doing.

All the dental work this poor child will probably need it sad. Getting cavities filled, root canals and pulling teeth is painful. It is unacceptable to knowingly ruin your child's teeth and put her through all of that at such a young age!

Maybe if you HAVE to give it to her, try Ovaltine instead... more vitamins and nutrients.. less crap.. Still sad though
