rollie pollie baby


My 6 month old who can completey roll over, crawl, what ever, likes to hold her own bottle. This is cool. One problem.

She keeps trying to roll over WHILE eating. she hasnt learned that the laws of gravity dont allow for this. Is there some way I can keep her still while she eats? she pitches a fit when her bottle "escapes" her.

I can't hold her, so please don't suggest that. I have problems with my shoulders and neck so i've never been able to hold her for any length of time. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  • maybe try a bobby pillow? that way she would stay semi upright as well. Also I think it's just one of those trial and error things...something she will get the hang of on her own.

  • she just rolls right over her boppy. lol. she doesnt like eating sitting up, so she throws herself down on her back, and then rolls right over the edge of the pillow.

    She's such a picky little baby.

  • let her do her thing she's gonna learn she can't drink a bottle and be on her tummy at the same time. be patient.

  • try putting her in like her car seat, or a high chair, something that makes her sit up she is used to. My son would take a bottle from his car seat and also loved to eat on his back, so made feeding him in the car easy. you might try doing that since you cant hold her long term. just use the car seat in the house too for that. if you have a high chair might be time to try it out too.
