Re: Does your baby hold their own bottle?
neither of mine were interested in holding their bottles until they didn't have a choice.... i started putting them in their bouncy seats or carrier seats for bottles and rolled up a blanket to prop the bottle and would put their hands on either side of the bottle to show them how to keep it in place.... it took them about a week to figure it out. and i was always right there to help them when they dropped it.... i wouldn't just prop a bottle and leave them to fend for themselves!!!
it was a life saver for me because then i could give them their bottles when we were out shopping, or on a long drive, or when they wanted a bottle while i was making dinner or cleaning house or whatever....
oh, and they were both around 7 months when i started doing this.
