Baby wanting to play while eating

Ok, my son will be 5 months on the 24th. He has started this thing where he likes to laugh and squiggle around A LOT while I'm trying to feed him his bottle. He won't sit still, and then to top it off, he doesnt finish the bottle anymore (he's on 8 oz.). If I set him down and prop the bottle up, he doesnt do this. Am I doing something wrong, or what can I do to change this?

I just thought that maybe he wasn't hungry, and was just eating the bottle cause its there.

  • He's just being a baby. He's enjoying time with you. You are not doing anything wrong and neither is he. Why would you want to stop him from being happy and showing you he loves being with you?
