HOW I WEANED MYSELF
The Montessori philosophy is to present the tools for independence at the age that has been shown over the years to be the best time, but then to follow the individual child, because each child has his or her own timetable independent of the adult's plan.
We do not give the child bottles, modern pacifiers, or tippy cups, but rather a chair, table, spoon, and a little weighted bottom glass (some shot glasses are ideal). We asked a couple who followed this path to weaning to write this up to share with other parents; we recommend reading it in the first months of the child's life. There are 4 pages.
