My son is 7 and a half months and wont hold a bottle yet. He will try once the milk gets low but not for long, and also with his juice he trys but throws it away. I cant wait until he does. Hes just so spoilt he wont even try.

Since we use NUK bottles I purchased a 5 ounce bottle with "handles". My son holds the handles really well. Most of the time he holds it up high enough to drink. Only sometimes he lets it rest on his chest and chews on the nipple.

My daughter started putting her hands up to try and hold her own bottle at around 3 months. I don't think she fully knows what she is doing but it getting much much closer every time she is given a bottle but she is only 3 1/2 months now so not quite there yet.

My son wont hold his bottle whatsoever but he is a spoiled brat he knows mommy will hold it for him so he will eat so he doesnt even try lol. He will hold his sippy cup tho no probelm. Maricel my advice for you to encourage her to hold her bottle (even tho my LO wont) is hold it out in front of her and let her grab it herself then let go. she will figure out how to hold it and drink out of it herself if she wants to.
