  • She's never had a bottle.

  • I think she was about 5 months, maybe 6 before she fully grasped the concept of holding it upright so she didn't get air.

  • Where is the snooty answer?

  • ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? I just said she's never had a bottle!? How on earth is that judging you or anyone else and how is that assume what you put in your LO bottle! A little confrontational!?

    DD's never had a bottle so I said she's never had one, if you want to take a simple statement as "snooty" then good for you, but I think YOU'RE the one assuming things.

  • My son was still doesn't really hold a bottle at 14 months. He was mainly breastfeed and although he will gladly hold a cup or a sports bottle he never holds a baby bottle. My home nurse said it is because that has always been his time to relax ect and he knows I will hold it for him. He usually has his hands in his hair instead.
    The only time he does hold a bottle is when we are out and the other kids are hold their own bottles.

  • My daughter hasn't had a bottle either so idk. I'm guessing its like any other milestone- different kids at different paces.
