Two days before his birthday we switched to sippy cups only. The first two days were rough; mornings and evenings in particular. I'd say the first 24 hours were the worst. The bottle was a soother for Marcus, and when we didn't have other (known) options to calm Marcus it was tough for all of us. But, I wasn't buckling. My kid wasn't about to be running around with a bottle hanging from his mouth for no good reason.
After two days Marcus seemed to have forgotten about the bottle altogether. We've been bottle-free ever since. Praise Jesus.
(While I know this isn't earth shattering, blog-worthy news, it's here more for documentation for Marcus, as well as me. Someday I hope Marcus sits down and read all of this amazing craziness.)
Transitioning to one nap a day wouldn't be so brutal if that solo nap lasted for longer than an hour. A two hour nap would be glorious. Marcus doesn't seem to realize this. Yet.
Let's hope potty training goes more along the lines of losing the bottle, and less like the nap transition.
