I posted a while back about our attempt to ween Owen off the bottle at night. Well, after a month we fell off the wagon and now we are trying to do the whole 9 yards. It's not working out well. With teething, ear infections, and now a pretty bad cold (coughing and stuff), Owen hasn't felt well this entire month. There has been a couple days here and there but for the most part he's upset easily and clingy. Owen finds comfort in the bottle and so there is our dilemma. He's used a sippy cup since he was 6 months old and we have found that he likes the silicone spout ones better.

Plus for some reason he does not like the taste of milk. I would have to mix it with formula so I tried some vanilla soy milk and he likes that. I'm tempted just to put the soy milk in the bottle and then after he's used to that then start weening. I bought some Next Step Lipil formula just in case because we will be out of formula after today and it's for ages 9 to 24 months. So, if he absolutely won't take soy milk as a subsitute then we can give him that.
