When Clayton checks into the hospital, they always ask if he has a "security item." And for Clayton, his security is simply Daddy and Momma (in that order). Jackson, on the other hand, has decided no blanket or Teddy will do--he only needs his bottle to rest easy!
Since weaning off the b.reast, he has quickly become attached to his new source of food. The look he used to give me is now reserved for his bottles! And it makes no difference if he's eaten lately or not--if he sees a bottle, he nearly hyperventilates until he gets it in his hands. And for that matter, he covets anyone's drink! Brian and I have to almost drink in secret in order to keep him from throwing a fit! But if we do drink in front of him after he's just finished his bottle, I just hand him a sippy cup of water so he can get used to drinking from it. Hopefully this new found love for the bottles will easily translate to sippy cups!
