Morning mamas! At what age did your infants start holding their own bottle by themselves?

About 2 1/5-3 months. I kinda wish he wouldn't though, because now my SO just hands him the bottle and lets him feed himself. He doesn't stop drinking when he's coughing so he always starts choking :x

my son is going on 11 months and still won't do it.
but he was breastfed for the fist 8 months, so I think he's just being lazy LOL
he'll do it sometimes, but not usually.



it seems like most kids do it between 6-8 months.

Jayda can officially hold the 4 oz plastic bottle on her own. She is 3 months 3 weeks. I think the first time I captured her on camera holding it(but it was propped) she was around 2 months.

My son is 8 months and still not holding it unless he is laying flat and I won't let him drink from it that way. He'd rather use it as a toy or he will bend forward and stick his mouth on the bottle nipple lol..it's really funny when he does that!

Melody looks like she tried to even though she's too young to actually do it. It's so cute when she puts her hands up on either side of the bottle. She does however know how to send the bottle flying when she no longer wants it lol.
