V had her 14-month check up today. Everything was fine but I was in for a shock when the doctor told me the bottle had to go. I assured her we were down to once a day, in the evening, after her bath, right before she went to sleep. The doctor told me that the milk is going to rot her teeth and that she needs to have her milk earlier before having her teeth brushed.

So we put her to bed without the bottle, cold turkey. She cried, but she was tired after having booster shots plus having gone to the park to run around. She fell asleep relatively fast. We’ll see how it goes tomorrow.
