  • It depends on the baby, my son held his at about 4 mnths, but my husband worked with him alot. He would open his hands and put them around it everytime we feed him. Don't worry, your baby will get it.

  • DS#1 didn't do it until almost 8 months old, he was lazy, lol. DS#2 is EBF.

  • Mine is 8 mo. and is probably capable but would prefer it if I did it...its a relaxation/bonding thing for her I think.

  • My first held his at 6mo, my second 5mo, my third 4mo, my fourth 8mo and my fifth is just getting the hang of it. So all babies are different i guess.
