  • no! only to reach for something and not intterrupt a feeding, but nooo not for a longer term thing, you really have to hold it up fo rthem as their little lmouths are so fragile... maybe to answer a phone i will do it with a blanket scrunched up or a stuffed animal, but ONLY for a few blank seconds, then my hand is right back interacting holding that bottle. thier feeding should not be messed with and is very important to respect for thei rgrowth and peace in their trusting mind! they want to know YOU are there, YOU are feeding them and they are safe... not left to fend for themselves like a warehoused baby! i have an adopted son whos seven and a seven MONTH old daughter. YET he never breastfed and i fed him in my crooked arm the bottle all the time. SHE breastfed for fourt mophts and never got used to arm holding while feeding so i feed her whiel she reclines in her bouncy seat and i hover over and around her lovingly.
