Most babies hate tummy time and I don't know a 4 month old that holds there own bottle yet. He is just fine.

Hi, my almost 7 mnth old hated tummy time and my sahdh just kept at it for so many min. at a time and increased the time she was there till she now loves it. 4 mnths is a hard time to number one be away from a warm body and number two be placed on your stomach when you are used to being on your back. As for the bottle holding, my Dd is just now getting the hang of it, bottles are heavy, awkward and they need the ability to tip them up which she has not mastered. (she can get it to her mouth and thats about it) Dont push him, all babies are not alike.

Calm down, quit comparing him to other babies, and realize they all grow and develop at different rates.

Relax.  My kid hated tummy time too.  He'll get there.  You only need a few minutes at a time at first.  My kid was about 6 months before she was able to hold her bottle.  She tried earlier but it was just too heavy for her.

He is not a dog...you don't train them. He's four months old chill out or by 5 your going to either have a heart attack or give him anxiety. Fall behind at 4 months?

Your kid is fine. If he doesn't like tummy time, don't do tummy time. It's not like the alphabet or math, where he'll be in trouble if you don't make him learn. He will learn on his own time. He doesn't need to be trained to crawl. He will figure it out.
