|Kiko is still bottle feeding at age 3|
I don't really remember when exactly did my two other kids stop bottle feeding. I just knew that when they started to attend school, they no longer care to ask. But my toddler who is now 3 years and 4 months old can hardly live a day without drinking his milk in the bottle and still ask for about 2 to 3 during bedtime.
According to most of the articles I read, weaning from a bottle should begin at age 1 and if beyond that, there's a possibility of tooth damage or excessive consumption of milk that will eventually lead to obesity. This may be true to other races like kids in The US or other countries with different body metabolism but here in the Philippines, I know of kids enjoying their bottles up to age 5.
Giving up the bottles should be the parent's initiative and not the kid's. Obviously because, they have the power to do it but gradually like one bottle at a time. A sudden elimination of the kid's comfort and familiarity with bottles will make him/her very upset.
My Kiko is already eating solid foods. He likes Spare Ribs Sinigang and Beef (Bulalo) Nilaga. His favorite vegetable is okra (lady's finger) and he's fond of eating corn, cucumber , banana, mango and watermelon.
I should slowly take away his bottles and try to give him milk in the glass already. Good luck to both of us.
