Some mother are indeed eager for their babies to move to the "next step." I don't think it's because they want their kids to grow up too quickly. I think it is because they're worried their kids might fall behind the "average, what are they supposed to be doing at this age and is my kid falling behind everyone else?!" panic. I think that you should neither push them to grow up too quickly but yet not baby them to the point that they don't want to progress to their proper stage either. When my son is capable of holding his own bottle, I will encourage him to hold it. If he doesn't like his bottle..yay for me! A common dilemma solved and on with the sippy cup. My parents were relieved when I threw my bottle across the room and never wanted it again lol. Same with my pacifier. Your son might be hinting to you that he has mastered the bottle and is ready for the next step.
