    i wrap Tabs' arms and body up a bit in a terry towelling so when i give gripe water and more importantly her meds she cant bat them all over the place!
    Now im wondering if this is restricting this development?

    I have a lil tommee tippee trainer cup/bottle thingy with a soft chewy spout and was just wondering also would this give her more wind as i am using Dr browns bottles?
    When did all your LO's start holding their own bottles?

    Seth tries but he can't quite manage it yet... he holds on to my hands when Im giving him his bottle, I guess its too heavy for him?

    Tom tries, but he isnt strong enough. He will hold on though. he just thinks the trainer cup is a good chew.

    Jayce tries but realy only ends up pushing it out of my hands. Sometimes he gets it but it only lasts 30 seconds tops.
