    My son didn't start holding his own bottle till about 7 months.

    My dd didn't do it til about 7 months either... give it time, he will learn it eventually. My advice is don't rush it! You're gonna miss it when this baby stage when he's growing up!

    Holdind a bottle is not a milestone and it definitly shouldnt be encouraged. Is he sitting up on his own? Rolling over?

    My son never really held his bottle. He could hold it after like 10-11mo, but I was more than glad to hold it and bond with him, so he didn't have to.

    Shouldn't be encouraged? Imo it SHOULD be. It help him to hold things later, and hold it steady. Plus teaches him how to hold a sippy cup later on.

    My DD held her bottle once and stopped after that around 7 or so months. I gave her a bottle and she expected me to hold it for her. I put her hands on side and after couple minutes she realized I wasn't going to hold it for her and she teach her to be independent. Plus good for strengthening her arms, for holding bottle for a period of time and when she has to hold her head back and liftbottle up when running low.

    No don't let him cry. Not all kids do things at the same month or so. All kids are different. When you feed him, (this what I did with my son) put his hands on the bottle as ur feeding him and take ur hands off without him noticing. I did that to my son and he gave me this pissed off look like "omg u tricked me" lol
