I think that it is just because he is being lazy, but i have tried everything from just leaving it on the tray to holding his hands up to it and then let go but he just puts his hands down and gets pissed. He is being so stubborn about the whole thing and he is that way with a sippy cup to. does anyone have any suggestions? What age is a an average age for kids to hold a sippy cup when they want a rink and to hold there bottle on there own?Answer Question

Neither of my kids ever held their own bottles. I was ok with that b/c i knew it would be long until they didn't want me to do stuff for them!! I just savored the cuddle time.
As far as the sippy cup... we had to try several kinds to find one they liked. Could it be that he doesn't like the top o n the one your offering? Just a thought.
I do know that he will get independent soon enough, he's still little. Give him time, they all do things on their own time schedule. That was the hardest for me with my MIL in my ear saying so-and-so'd baby is doing "xyz" already!!
