Please help, i am willing to try anything at this point. My 14 month old will not hold her bottle to drink her milk. I know she knows how, she holds it to bite the nipple or to play with the bottle, but she wont hold it to drink. She grabs it and gives it to me so that i can give it to her. How can i get her to be more independent. (I've tried the sippy cup too she just wont hold anything when she wants to drink)

Just give it to her and walk off for a bit come back in a moment or so to check on her. If she's playing with it take it off of her. Give her a few minutes give it back to her. She'll probably get upset but she'll get the idea.
