    None of my five went below four bottles/nursings a day until we weaned. The twins kept a sippy of milk at bedtime til 15 mos after switching to cups at 10 mos.

    Ok so it looks like you dropped the bottle around dinner time, so a snack then dinner not long after, thats the problem we are having is deciding when during the day to drop it it always seems the last bottle is when it takes like an hour to eat it, so maybe skipping the one before it makes them smash that last one... its soooo hard because they have been on this schedule since like 10 weeks!!! We are all in a routine! I just don't want to go backwards!!

    Its funny as soon as I post this they start eating only 5 oz out of each bottle and going to sleep, maybe its time!!
