  • Really? All you're concerned about is being lazy, and not having to feed your child?

  • ObbyDobbie I've seen your replies to a few other cafemom's posts and I'm not impressed. Your replies are ridiculous and extremely immature. You only post to get a reaction. Really shows your maturity level!!

  • NEVER!!! I believe that is one of our jobs as a parent. After reading study after study about that particular "milestone" it certainly was no "milestone" I ever wished my child to obtain.

  • In my opinion holding your childs bottle at 10 months old seems lazy as a parent. Maybe that's why I have dependent children. I teach my son's to think and do for themselves. My son is 14 and he shows no signs of being deprived since his mother didn't hold his bottle for him nor does my 8yr old. Actually I see kids their age and I'm pretty sure their mothers are still whipping their butts! My son's are independent and smart. My 14yr old will be starting college course engineering classes in August. I'm sure me holding or not holding his bottle made all the difference lol

    Did I post my question wrong did I post "Do you think your baby should hold it's own bottle?" If you don't have an age then move on this question obviously doesn't concern you. I think people just post replies to get their #of answered questions in. Or they try really hard to make other parents feel wrong for what they do. Seriously get over yourselves!!
