  • show her how to hold the bottle when she eats . as far as walking let her pull up stand whatever she wants as much as possible and she will do it when it's time. hold both of her hands and walk with her.

  • you need to purchase a book from the bookstore or borrow one from the library that teaches you how to care for infants and toddlers, seriously.

  • First off, your a mom and it's not your mom's job to teach you how to be a mom. Anyway, most babies dont' walk until 11 or twelve months. With my son, learning things was almost like an instinct. I'd show him how to do it once, then he'd do it. Putting her hands on the bottle will teach her how. Be positive with her. She senses negativity. Babies are like sponges. They soak up things around them.

  • She will do it all when she is ready.
    Take her hands and put them on the bottle. Show her what she should be doing and be consistant with showing her.
    Hold her hands and walk WITH her. Then start to stand her up and take a step away and tell her to come to you.
    Ultimately, she will learn when she is ready. Good Luck Momma.

  • 1st of don't pay attention to these miserable bitches on this site! Your askin for help & all they can do is put u down!!! Well I commend u for askin for help that takes a lot for someone to ask 4 any kind of help! Ok enough of that!
    Being a mom is not something that can be taught its an instinct!!! Your baby girl will show u when she is ready to do something you just need to be their & show her & be patient with her she will learn from you... so its up to you to show her right from wrong just guide her in every way possible but remeber she will always have to learn for her self all u can do is be their & help...
