So we have a dilemma over here. Our little guy Murphy who's mom passed on is now 16 weeks old! And still on the bottle, can't change out the nipples, can't miss his morning 8 am cup of milk nor his 4 pm one cup of milk. If your five minutes late, everyone suffers for it. He is on whole cows milk has been from birth, of course he eats everything else, so this is more about being nurtured and wanting his bubby. My husband and sons fight with me about this, and when they have tried to not give him the bottle and tell me they did, Murphy rats them right out. I don't have the heart to pull it from him. But I know the average ween on bottles is eight weeks, but I recall seeing mom fed babies still eating from the mom six months in. Is it terrible what I am doing? I just don't have the heart and I think my neighbors would string me up to pull it now.
