my May 26, 06 daughter is beyond her age in most everything. She is potty training really well and a vocabulary out of this world. Very tuned into emotions too- my trouble is that she will not drink milk from a cup- even chocolate milk. She likes milk, but only in a "baby bottle"(as she calls it.) So she knows that bottles are for babies. The only time she asks for milk is at a nap or bedtime. This is not everytime either. But, i find myself offering it at a sleep time if she doesn't ask because, i know the nutritional value of milk is important. Am I wrong for this? It is not like she walks around with a bottle, they don't leave the house. I also notice that as soon as she begins to suckle the bottle, her eyes roll and she is content; like her nursing or eating as a baby- a comfort! We want are kids to be big kids, but, I think the comfort part is why I believe that it is okay. She is still a baby- 2.5, still needs nurturing.
