Why isn't my 9-month old son holding his own bottle yet?

Q: Please help!

A: It’s worth taking your son to his pediatrician for a checkup, and telling the pediatrician about your concern. At nine months, most babies are interested in holding their own bottles, and the fact that your son isn’t doing this yet could be an indication that he’s lagging a bit behind developmentally. On the other hand, it could be that your son just enjoys kicking back and letting you do all the work of holding his bottle while he’s eating! You’ll feel better knowing for sure, so I’d recommend making an appointment with your pediatrician sooner rather than later.

  1. My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SleepBaby .org<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SleepBaby .org<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
