Suri’s too old for bottle


Paediatricians believe that Hollywood’s star couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ daughter Suri, 2, is too old to drink through bottle.

Dr Charles Czerepak, a paediatric dentist and member of the board of the American Academy of Pediatrics, says that children should quit drinking from a bottle much before turning two. ‘We recommend that the mother start to wean the child from the bottle around nine months,’ the New York Daily News quoted him as saying. ‘The real issue is dental cavities. Water is never going to cause dental decay, but milk and juice will,’ he added.

The newspaper report suggests that the little Cruise was recently seen drinking through a bottle, when she appeared with her mother Katie on the sets of TV drama Eli Stone. However, Suri is not the only kid in Hollywood with such a habit. Apparently Angelina Jolie’s daughter Zahara has the same habit too. — Agencies
