Me and my bottle were inseparable until I was 5. Simply because it was more comfortable to take a bottle with hot milk to bed than a cup... yeah, I was lazy. Sometimes I would take a bottle even now

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

Re: tennis players and their children

wow, good eye Pirata. it seems that they've designed them to resemble bottles, maybe because some kids really resist the idea of a change away from the bottles that they are used to.

Yep, we use them at the day care I work at in the two baby rooms, 15 months and under. Its recommended that children start using regular cups by 18 months at the very latest, and we already had those pictures of the twins in Indian Wells sharing a cup, but they're out at the playground, so the sippy cups are very handy

Not a fan Once your kid starts talking, they should be weaned off of those things. Bad for dental development, especially if your child is still using them past 3-4 years old.

I don't think they use them too often. It's not in most of the pics we see of them. Twins were sick at Indian Wells and being taken to a tennis match while sleepy and possibly cranky... I'm sure Mirka and the nannies just wanted to give them whatever would make them feel better (and kepp them quiet ) in that setting.

They're "pushing" it just because they did a story on it?

You're such a hardass. Would you breastfeed your baby, or give the infant a gun and tell it to go hunt down its own damn dinner?

I would never breast feed a 3 year old.

Breast feeding has nothing to do with a pacifier

Re: tennis players and their children

Breastfeeding is ok the first 18 months or so, after that it makes the kids way too attached to their mothers.

Maternity licence is great to bond with your kids and after that you just give the breast milk in bottles, my kids had me drained after a while
