So let me first say I am looking for some people in similar situations.
NOT somebody is is going to be critical.
My son will be 8 in 3 months and he is still drinking a bottle at night.
LONG story short he has classic autism,MR,hypotonia,dysarthia,apraxia....etc.
His soft palette touches his tongue(making it hard to swallow sitting up) and he could not chew food until he was 4.
He laid down flat to drink because his tone problems made him a bad sucker.
He started drinking out of a cup this year and uses it most of the day,but I put his meds in his milk and he wants a bottle at night and in the morning....
Any one have any advice about maybe getting him off the bottle?
Again,please do not be critical,unless your kid has had the same issues.
