yes, i feel much better! i can’t thank you enough for your responses. now i can quit worrying about it. i thought my daughter was the only one drinking her formula out of a bottle at age 3. i knew the reason why, so that is why i did not force her off. i have tried many times though(it was a nightmare)… and I have tried every sippy cup on the planet. nothing works for her. my other concern was her teeth.will her teeth be okay from staying on the bottle that long? thanks so much!!! blessings!
