Hi, My daughter is 31/2 and son is 26 months old. They are so handfull. My biggets issue with them is they still wear diapers and having hard time to throw their milk bottles. I tried couple of times to get rid of these bottles but not sucessful. I am right now so stressed can't imagine if they ever gonna leave their bottles. They both still wakes up 2 or 3 times a night for milk :( Don't know wat to do . Everyone is saying it will get better but juss wondering when ?

Thanks a lot for your reply. I will try now more harder. My daughter is potty trained she tell me when to go potty the issue is pee, thats why she is wearing diapers. I think you guys are absolutely right . I will try harder this time.

Thanks.

your kids do these things becuase they are in charge they know you will give in.. take the bottles toss them deal with the crying for a couple days... you are ruining their teeth. also your daughter is too old for a diaper *unless she has health issues* put her in panties show her the potty and tell her big girls use the potty not a diaper.. your son is still young to potty train..you really need to show you are in charge now or you are going to have some serious issues as they get older

you are the parent it is up to you to decide when your child should give up their bottles. if you don't want them to have them anymore throw them away and give them sippy cups instead. very few children will give them up given the choice. this is the first of a lot of battles you are going to face as a parent you need to be strong and show them you're in charge. you have an excellent oppertunity at the moment (if you celebrate christmas) to tell them santa needs the bottles to feed the baby reindeer so they are going to be big grown up children and let the baby reindeer have them and santa will give them an extra special present. as for potty training the three and a half year old should be ready. just at least have the potty around and tell him what you want him to do. give lots of praise and posative attention when they do what you want and try your hardest not to get stress when they don't. it will get easier it just doen't seem that way when you have two small children but you'll be surprised at how quickly it passes. being a mum is hard work but it's the best job in the world too - good luck!
