My 4 month old REFUSES to nap during the day, but when exhaustion finally hits the only way he'll lay down is with a warm bottle. He won't eat out of it, he just sucks on it. Even with a binky he won't do it, it has to be a warm bottle. I always feel guilty because I feel like I'm wasting good formula, even though I go through WIC and place the bottle in the fridge to be reused for cereal or making his homemade baby food. I NEVER let him sleep with the bottle, as soon as he's out I take the bottle away. I was just curious if anyone elses little ones do it? I know its a comfort thing, but I just don't understand why a bottle to suck on, but not eat out of, and not just a pacifier?
