    Default When did bub start holding own bottle?

    I'm just curious because my DS (now 2.5) was holding his own bottle at 6 month old
    But I am now starting to think he was early (by 6 months he was holding own bottle rolling over and almost sitting in assisted)
    Where as DD now 6 months old doesnt do any of these things
    She doesn't even attempt to hold her bottle like not even a little bit she just lays back arm screeched out letting me do all the work please don't get me wrong I LOVE holding her and feeding her
    This post is just for curiosity sake

    DS is 12 months and refuses to hold his bottles of milk..we dont mind feeding him still lol. However he will hold sippy cups with or without handles so he certainly knows how to he just prefers to lax out with both arms above his head when he has his milk before his nap and bedtime haha

    DD1 was holding her's around 6mths.

    DD2 still wasn't at about 9mths so i went and got her bottles with handles and then she did - some bubs just can't seem to manage it

    DD was holding her silly cup and little juice bottle with handles at 4mo (mummy was NOT allowed to touch lol!) And able to hold her own bottle at 5mo but still prefers me to do the work. Some days if she's being difficult I will lay her down on her mat and she quite happily feeds herself, stops halfway through so I can sit her up to burp then continues on contently

    DS was holding his from 4 months but occasionally forgot to tip it up when the milk got low so would suck air

    DD held her bottle at nearly 3 mths the first time then held it everytime after, I loved it cos my arm would get sore lol! I still used to cuddle her when she had it, and just let her hold it. Im guessing that she did it quite early and any future bubs I have prob won't, rats!

    DD currently holds it at times, but doesn't have the hand eye coordination to keep it in there or put it back in her mouth properly, it usually goes in her eye, up her nose etc! Haha

    She's 6.5 months old.
