our drinking bottle has a little broken bit at the top

so now all the water spills out of the bottle

and we don't like it because we call it our baby bottle even though it's not really a baby bottle.

I never had nor wanted a baby bottle for my alters. even the youngest had no need for the process it takes to drink from a bottle due to it reminded me of the abuse. even soda bottle, water bottles and so forth cause me anxiety to have to drink from them because of very early trauma... I keep paper cups handy in my purse and when home if theres a beverage in a bottle I pour it into a glass. I even get panic attacks using straws from fast food joints,
before plastic straw bans around the US happened I would get strange looks when I said "no straw thank you." I pop the lid off and drink it from the
cup. Instead of bottles and straws or baby sippy cups for me the focus point was on things that did not remind us of the process it takes to drink from a bottle, like a favorite blanket or favorite toy.

maybe you can look at the bottom of your bottle and see what the name of the company is, then google it, and buy another one from the company that made it.

maybe you can check with your alters to find out why they want to have bottles, if you end up not being able to replace your bottle at least you may be able to calm everyone down to where they can understand they no longer need a bottle.

thanks for your reply

and we're sorry if we baught up memories.. I think for us it's the other way round

cups trigger us a lot, especially because of our time in strict isolation

but maybe we can find a type of cup that works for us

with a fun picture on

or something we like

actually we had one with butterflies around the edges but it was too big

I hope itís ok to post here. I donít have DID but I do drink out of a bottle for oral sensory relief for my autism and itís been a great nighttime coping skill. I have a few baby bottles but I mostly just use my adult size baby bottle. I mentioned this to my last therapist and she had no problem with it. She just said if it helps and no one is getting hurt itís fine.

defenetly okay to post here, and I'm glad I am not the only one who drins out of a bottle (though lately I've been drinking out of my jane austin mug)

I don't know much about autism, (I'm not sure how much you know about DID), but I think your therapist is right. if it helps..

I have oral sensory problems. So itís an oral fixation. Basically chewing and sucking on things calms me down and helps with my anxiety and sleep issues. At night I drink out a bottle and I sleep with a pacifier and I have a chew toy meant for people with autism that has a lot of different textures on it. I also like to eat dense chewy foods like Little Debbie Cosmic brownies and Ezekiel bread and beans.

I actually explained this to my new therapist on Tuesday. I thought it would be tough but she was pretty accepting. She said the same thing as the other therapist ďif it helps it helps.Ē She even said I could bring it into our in person sessions in a few weeks. I thought that was nice but I probably wonít do that. I use it strictly to help me cope and sleep at night. I donít use it any other time. She is now one of 2 people that know that I do this. I donít think anyone else needs to know.
