Suri Cruise, drop that baby bottle!



Baby-bottle Last year, when a photo surfaced of then 2-year-old Suri Cruise sucking a bottle, the blogosphere went nuts. Kids aren't supposed to still be on the bottle that long, are they?

Apparently, though, Tom and Katie play by their own rules. A photo of Suri and her mom taken Wednesday (sorry folks, can't show it to you, but I can give you the link) shows the now 3-year-old celebutot still hasn't graduated to sippy cups.Yep, she's still hitting the bottle.

C'mon TomKat,  three years? Really? Most experts say that a child should be weaned from the bottle by a year old. Letting a child continue sucking on the bottle beyond that age can lead to tooth decay and even ear infections.

Maybe you're rich enough not to worry about paying for the dental bills and other health complications that will afflict your child. But if you don't stop it now, think how much harder it will be to wean her at 4...or 5...or...(shudder). Look, just do it, OK? You'll be glad you did and so will she.
