Is Suri Too Old to Hit the Bottle?

5/7/2008 8:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maybe it's what LRH prescribes, but Suri Cruise is too old to be drinking from a bottle, say doctors – medical doctors.

Suri was spotted yesterday slurping a bottle as she and Scientolomom Katie Holmes strolled Madison Avenue, but Usmagazine.com talked to some pediatricians who say that the two-year-old should've been drinking from a sippy cup already. Most babies are weaned off a bottle by 18 months.

Given her parents' insistence on keeping her under the stairs – this could explain a lot.

Babwa Covered Star's Fat Ass


Star Jones thought everyone would believe that her rapid weight-loss back when was the result of good habits – and she made Barbara Walters and the rest of "The View" girls lie for her.

Baba Wawa tells Oprah Winfrey that she "had to lie on the set everyday ... She was our colleague and she really did not want us to out her. We cared about her, and we thought we owed her." And here comes the bitch-zinger: "Well, we knew it wasn't portion control and Pilates."

Rihanna and Chris B. Finally Just Saying So


Rihanna at least is finally acknowledging that she and Chris Brown are an item, after months of playing annoyingly and needlessly coy.

"We've always been friends," she tells Elle. "But we're very close now." The pair have been spotted making out in a Jamaica pool and TMZ caught up with them getting tattoos together in NYC. As for that other persistent rumor about Rihanna – that she hooked up with her boss Jay-Z – she says, "I get asked about it all the time and I'm like, 'You're asking, but you know the answer.'"

Ah, technology. Disgraced guv'nor Eliot Spitzer is getting the chance to get all his girls in one online place. Ckrush.net is offering Client No. 9 the opportunity to create his own private social networking site for all of his, ahem, pals -- all for the same amount he paid for Kristen. ... A bunch of kids in Boca Raton enlisted Kanye West, Rihanna, and N.E.R.D. to raise money for For Darfur, their charity that is helping alleviate the suffering of refugees in Sudan. They held their big benefit show last night in Miami, reports the Miami Herald. ... Playboy is angling for Tiffany Shepherd, the Port St. Lucie teacher who got fired for working on a charter fishing boat that offers trips with topless and bikini-clad women, reports the Palm Beach Post.

Give her a break. My daughter sucked on the bottle untill she was 3. She was literally almost choking, when she tried to drink from normal cups, even from non-spill ones. I just let her stay on the bottle until she was ready. And, now, two years later, she has absoluteluly normal teeth and no decay, "Most" babies doesn't mean "all babies". We are individuals, not one body.

It truly depends on the child but the general rule is by 2 yrs. old - no more ba ba's. Plus by that age it's time to start addressing potty training and that can't happen when a child drinks from a bottle during the day. Sippy cups are designed not to spill, just leak a little. It must be hard to deal with a child's schedule and needs when the family is constantly traveling and moving around. Suri would probably benefit from a normal routine and be in the same surroundings for more than a couple of days at a time.
Leah Remini's child drinks 8 (!) bottles a night?! Sounds pretty unbelievable. She must be changing diapers as fast as she's refilling the bottles. When do they sleep? Ha, not buying it.

Hey Real Mother - yes, I'll bet you're a "real" mother, yesiree! I shudder to think what your mothering skills include. Leah Remini is just lazy - it's not the Scientology folks, even though you'd like to blame it for EVERYTHING while you pray to Jesus on Sunday and then gossip about celebrities anonymously on TMZ. Yep, you're a good Mom and a good Christian who likes to put other people down in a futile attempt to show your moral superiority. Kudos - you're a typical red state Christian. Now hurry along - time for Tyra! And don't forget the diet Pepsi and pork rinds.

Poor little Suri, Pucci-clad ragamuffin. She has to carry the instruments of her Scientology audit.

Dallas, not sure what you're referencing with me - just letting you know that I lost 40# in less than 3 months by doing nothing other than portion control (try it some time) and exercise, which included Pilates. Not sure why you're lumping me in with Jean, but if you hate her, then I like her.

And yes, another typical "Christian" who wishes me a blessed day...honey, you fool no one other than yourself. Go back to Loserville.

Yikes Baba Krywy - what side of the road did you wake up on? What a b**tch. Who cares if you lost 40! lbs. Go put your hs cheerleader outfit on and twirl in front of the mirror. Jeeze, how did you EVER let your perfect b**tchy self gain all that weight to begin with?

Scientologists are taught never to say "no" to their children, and this is likely the reason little Suri is allowed to continue to use her bottle. I suspect she will be late at most other milestones for the same reason (ie: potty training, sharing, etc.) There is no medical reason that a child her age should be sucking on the nipple of a bottle when their oral motor development is more than adequate to achieve drinking from a cup, and further, there can be negative oral motor consequences to using a bottle at that age, not to mention that children who are allowed to prolong bottle feeding and the use of binkies beyond that which is considered a normal age, can also have delayed speech or associated speech issues.


Get Suri off the bottle!
