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.'"

Party Favors: Spitzer Can Find Mo' Hos to Swallow – in Private ... Rich Kids Get Kanye to Help Them Do Something Worthwhile ... Playboy Mag Hot for Bikini Teacher


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.

"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.

No, she's not potty trained either and she's nearly 4 years old. Why? Because Scientologists don't believe that kids are kids, they think they are small adults and they don't tell them what they can and can't do as it would upset them. Un-frigging-believable.

Great cult you have there TOM.

As for those defending the practice of not setting limits and restrictions on kids, easy answer... They are either lazy parents of cult members trying to do damage control on the internet (like they do every day when people speak ill about them).

Free speech baby!

she is way too old to be sucking on a bottle . i was shocked last yr when i saw pics of her last yr after her first b day sucking on one.. i have 2 kids 6 and 2 the day they turned one was the last day they saw a bottle.. i had them start drinking from straws, cups, sippie's very early ages my 6 yr old was taking big boy drinks from a glass at 3 months. if you start training them early the bottle is forgotten quickly. my nephew quit using a bottle at 10 months which i dont agree with but im not his mom. i think they give in to suri so she wont cry and whine .. they make sippie cups that dont leak

Jean~ So, you go to Bali (right) and you stay on the TMZ site the entire time you are there. Damn, you have a pathetic life and a potty mouth to go along with it!

Sounds like you need a hug......................

I drank out of a bottle til I was 6, and I'm fine...no emotional scars here or screwed up teeth here.

IT'S NOT A BIG DEAL. Some babies BREAST FEED until they're two...and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

She's such a beautiful little girl!

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!

SUCKING ON A PACIFIER/BOTTLE LONGER THEN NEEDED CAN CAUSE THE BABIES TEETH TO GROW CROOKED! (AND IT IS JUST PLAIN LAZINESS.) BUT I GUESS WHEN YOU HAVE THAT MUCH MONEY, YOU CAN JUST SET YOUR CHILD UP TO GET SOME WORK DONE WHILE YOU ARE GETTING YOURS DONE...

She is definately too old to be sucking on a bottle every time we see her. Also, milk in it? In my opinion, no child of that age needs to be 'eating' all day long, or in public. No wonder they grow up without any manners. I confess to resorting to a bottle occasionally in public while my boys were learning the finer points of a sippy cup. Sometimes the sucking quiets them, but I only used water after they started getting teeth.

THANK YOU. I said the same thing when I saw the clip last night. WAY TOO OLD for a bottle. Then again with a robot mother and a closet homosexual dad, maybe they should let her have it until she graduates to beer. Of course, we all know the real reason is that Katie can't have a little dribble spill on her $9,000 frock.

WiseOne... tell us about your kids? you know it all... these two obviously love their child..does it bother you that they are rich? I bet you are the spawn of some heroin addicted carnival clown and an overweight drunken hairy lipped Jenny Craig drop out. Get yourself a real man and settle down blobby!

The bottle is ridiculous!! She is way too old to be carrying that thing around. Her parents are lazy and don't want to take the time to teach her to use a cup. My daughter has the same b-day as cute little Suri and hasn't had a bottle in over a year. Will she still be in diapers at five???

Standing by the edge    

I just watched the link to Rachel Ray's show where Leah Rimini and her husband were on and it's true. They really do give their almost 4 yr. old daughter up to 8 bottles a night! They also never tell her no, they don't want to upset her. God help them, or should I say L.Ron Hubbard help them, when she get's older. They are going to have one hellacious battle on their hands when they try to keep her safe from herself. The poor child is alread well on her way to obesity. That's sad in itself. It's really foreign to me to hear parents say they can't say no to a child. They're abdicating their roles and responsibilities as adults and parents. Pathetic. Their daughter is also going to be one obnoxious human being. Glad they don't live around me and my kids don't have to get along with her. They'd kick her butt if her attitude was that spoiled.

Who doesn't feel sorry for Suri and her two step-siblings? Good grief, having Tom Cruise for a father is only marginally less psychotic than what Michael Jackson's kids go through.
