  • Caroline was 6 months old. it may sound harsh but just give the bottle to him and if he wants some he will have to do it himself. im sure a few days after he will get the hang of it! Caroline took to bottle away from us so im not much help sorry here is a bump! :-)

  • My daughter didnt do it till after she turned 1. Now all she gets is her bedtime bottle. Some kids never hold their own bottles!
