My daughter is 8.5 months old and still can't hold her own bottle, I'm not sure if I'm expecting too much or whether it's normal to not yet be able to hold it? She often puts her hands on it but if I let go she either isn't holding it properly so it falls, or she pulls it straight out of her mouth. Is this normal?

Dd is 7 months and only has an expressed bottle once a week, where she will hold it herself, has for a few months. She has always been really good with her hands though. But then again has no interest in crawling or in rolling much but that's just her

Dd is almost 7 months and has been holding her own bottle for the last month. There ae still times she refuses to hold it herself but shes generally pretty good.
Ds had bottles until he was 11 months old and held his own bottle maybe 4-5 times? Like a pp, he just wouldnt do it!

I enjoyed bottle feeding when I couldn't bf. It was nice to have cuddles.

My bubba didn't show any interest in holding his own until he was 13 months old - and he just one day picked it up and drank it himself.

My dd never was interested in holding her bottle till about 10 or 11 months!!! She was walking etc, but just wouldn't hold her bottle!!!

This is so good, I thought my 11mo ds was the only baby to never hold his bottle! He picks it up but doesn't understand he needs to tip it up.

Can she hold a sippy cup? I'm just wondering if maybe it's the shape that is hard for her to hold on to.
