ABC news is all over Katie Holmes’ decision to let 2½-year-old Suri Cruise suck away on her bottle .
The TV network is citing pediatricians who say that introducing a sippy cup between 6 months and 12 months is fine and can be followed by drinking from a regular cup. ABC says that pediatricians who say kids who continue to feed from a bottle past the recommended age may be at higher risk of a number of ills including speech problems, tooth erosion and deformation, and, not surprisingly, trouble letting the bottle go speech problems, tooth erosion and deformation, and, not surprisingly, trouble letting the bottle go.
It seems surprising, or not surprising, that the media would be going after a married celebrity mom who spends time with her child. But, going after a 2 1/2 year old who they say is drinking out of a bottle? Is this the best they can do with the Olympic spotlight focused on NBC?
