Maggie doesn't take bottles. I guess I'm just to lazy to go to all the trouble of repeated boiling (well water here at Nani's) and after some 27 months of nursing we just haven't really needed to (I did try to give Sadie expressed milk when we went on vacation once... I thought it would be easier on the road... instead we had a bought of something like colic that lasted for the rest of the day and part of the night... so that also probably contributes to my current bottle-less stance).
Still, she knew what that bottle was for. She latched right on and fought me as I tried to take it away. Thankfully it was nearly empty and I think, at the very most, she got a drop that was in the nipple.
However, whatever taste she got, she loved and kept reaching for it. And of course, her loving big sister, spent the rest of the night trying to smuggle her sippie cups and bottles.
Maggie wishes she was Sadie-Sized. She's determined to do everything her sister does.
Did your second babies (or any subsequent ones) do things like crawling and walking earlier than your first ones did? Maggie just always seems to be trying to do things because her sister does. She doesn't even want board books because her sister has paper ones (and that's just a disaster waiting to happen!). She's always watching her sister and she wants to do everything!
