Sue us for bad parenting, but C still uses a bottle. He never had pacifiers as a baby, in fact, he would gag on them if you tried to put one in his mouth. But from three months on, he always had bottles of pumped breastmilk when I was at work. He must have grown some attachment to the bottle, because this boy loves his "ba-bo" and uses it like a pacifier at night.
The way he puts his hand palm-down to hold the bottle up is the cutest habitual little move that melts my heart. Makes me remember that "just right" feeling of sucking my thumb when I was a little kid - I can totally relate! It's his self-soothing mechanism.
