Nope, when she turned a year she only got a bottle of water at nap time. then in March she gave up the bottle all together.
Binky is another issue!! She only gets that at bedtime and she knows it so doesnt ask for it until shes in her crib, but I tried taking it away too and she is having no part of that, she will cry for it. So its hers for the time being

No, she decided she was done shortly after her first birthday. She was on top of it and just flat out refused to take a bottle.... while my husband and I stood there wondering what the heck was wrong with our baby and why is she wailing when we try to give her milk.
Nope. I never could get her to latch, so i EPed for 16 weeks and dropped to 1 oz per day(didnt have a good pumping place, most times I was pumping in my car from 2 weeks old) and was finally ok enough of this!! And we just kind of talked to her from the time we introduced a sippy cup(She played with it more than drank from it, but was interested.) that big girls drink from a cup not a bottle. By the time she was a year old she was down to a bottle at naptime and bedtime. O guess over the course of a couple of weeks we would go in and find the bottle fuller and fuler. Til one day we found bottles that was completely full. I packed up all the bottle stuff over Thanksgiving break. We just kept telling her that big girls didn't need bottles. We went in one morning and found and empty bottle, from there we followed her lead. I had all the bottles up by New Year's, though most day she didn't get one(I kept them out through travel over Christmas, just in case).
Now she was paci girl. It had to be the Soothie pacifiers. At 6ish months when I stepped up the 6+ month ones she refused them. Well one day around 11 months she found one that she'd been playing with and it was in her mouth and she was chewing on it. Had it again ever since. I'm thinking once she's through teething she'll be done with it again.
YES! We're down to BFing twice per day. Every little bit of weaning has been mommy-led... Max looooooves BFing! My plan is to take it down to once per day if/when I get pregnant, and let him self-wean the bedtime BFing whenever he's ready.
