    i was thinking this as maddi is now reaching for her bottle and trying to hold it but her little hands are too small :cloud9: we have a good picture of her 'holding' it with it rested, but looks like shes holding it :dohh: she can hold smaller objects but the bottles seem so big :dohh:

    I wanted to know that too :D, but Jayden is trying to grab his bottle from time to time, but he hasnt held it fully yet!
    I have been trying to feed him with training bottle lately, but i don`t think its the time for him yet.

    My bubs can hold a bottle but just not a 9oz one...he will but then it will keep slipping from his mouth and he seems to get frustrated...just wondering when he will be able to hold a 9oz bottle too xx

    Oh, well Caitlyn never has more than 6oz, so maybe that's why.
    I guess he will do it when he wants to. Some kids won't do it atall.

    Hannah's only three months and she doesn't hold her bottle. She does rest her hands on it but I think it's more to look at her hands than anything else :rofl:

    my boy is 8months and has no intention on holding his bottle - he's more interested in holding my clothes and hands (which I think is quite cute really).

    Charlotte started at around 3 months, but I kept taking it from her and holding it (awful, I know, but I wanted to be needed!) and now she won't hold it anymore :dohh:

    ditto. except Coltons only 8mo. He absolutely REFUSES! He will put his hands on it and reach for it to bring it to his mouth, but then he just lets go. Apparently it's not his job to hold it :dohh: and if I put his hands on it to try and 'teach' him he gets mad at me and just starts screaming and jerking his hands away.
