My second ds self weaned at 11.5mths 2 weeks after going back to daycare. I didn't realise until too late that his stupid Tommee Tippee sippy cup 'nipple' was so hard that he had to bite down on it to get the milk out.... therefore he continually bit me until I was bleeding and he weaned that way. I much later realised how hard it was to get milk out of the sippy cup, so in hindsight I realise he was doing the same thing to me when nursing (biting down every time)...so I put it as the major contributor to his weaning which made me mad!

Layla is having water from a water bottle - it is summer here and very hot so I offer her water as well as nurse more often... it's just a normal kid's water bottle though and I hold it and help control the flow of it so she doesn't get too much...so she doesn't really suck on it for long.
