It’s funny how much my children can look alike but have entirely different personalities. While C has an intense personality, Baby Jo is very easy going. C has never slept well; Baby Jo can be put down completely awake and goes to sleep on her own. C was very attached to his pacifier; Baby Jo doesn’t use one at all. C…has feeding issues. Baby Jo…loves to eat.
C has given up his bottle.
We decided not to wean him off of his nighttime bottle at 12 months, because of all the transition we’ve had in the past two months. That bottle always seemed to comfort him before bed and I didn’t want to take that comfort away. He’s 14 months old now and I was planning on weaning him in the next couple weeks after he adjusted to our new home. I know that it was time and am relieved not to go through a weaning process, but I still find myself grieving the fact that my son isn’t a little baby anymore.
