DS is almost 17 months and he still doesn't hold his won bottle. He just figured out how to tip his sippy cup enough to get water out of it when it isn't completely full two weeks ago.

My oldest DD could hold hers by the end of her 4th month... my youngest is 4 months now, and has been trying for about a month.

DD couldn't hold her until she was almost 11 months old. Rest assured Mama...you DD will hold her bottle in time!

I don't remember for sure but I think Logan was around 9 months when he started holding his own bottle. Evan never really *wanted* to hold his own bottle and he didn't even try until he was closer to 10 months. Just in time for me to start giving him a sippy cup instead

My DS is 11 months and still doesn't hold his. I mentioned it to my cousin, who told me that breastfed babies usually don't hold their own bottle until they're older, maybe because they're used to not having to hold their food/beverage source!

Re: when did your child start holding his/her bottle?

My DS, who was formula fed, never held his own bottle! But, at 1 year I took it away and gave him a sippy... which he held onto great. I think him not holding onto the bottle made it easier to wean/take it away.
