I’ve mentioned before that N.Lo finally, after a full year, learned to drink from a sippy cup instead of a bottle. But what I haven’t mentioned is that he really actually sit up and drink from the cup yet. Is it me, or is that odd. I suppose anything goes with these employees. And I suppose that he’s been fairly trained to drink while laying back, whether in my arms, or on the Boppy pillow, or while being changed (good distraction technique). But one would think that he would have picked it up by now? Isn’t that what 1-year-olds do?

K.Lo has always helped herself to drinks, took to a sippy cup pretty early on, so I’m not programmed to think much of it throughout the day, to remember that the boy needs a drink. So if he’s fussy these days, after hunger, tiredness, and diaper change, the most obvious conclusion is thirst. He crawls over to his juice, and we hold the cup up so he’s drinking from it like a hamster. Refuses to put or keep his hands on the thing. So the CEO has suggested the following item for N.Lo’s Holiday Bonus Package this year: HamsterBottle Maybe installed under the Conference Room Table? It could work.

    just remember you have to change the water and rinse the bottle every day or bacteria could start to grow.

    This is an excellent point.

    and sometimes you even have to put in special vitamins to keep the hamster, er, boy?, from getting what is called "wet tail."
