How do you go about training infants to hold their bottles?

What age is good to start training?


Answer by  Taytotot (314)

When feeding your baby straighten out their hands and place it on the bottle while you hold it . They will probably start doing it around 4 months and be able to handle it completly around 6 months. Use a small bottle so that it is not too heavy for your child.

When infants are four to five months old they will instinctively reach for their bottles. Then they will gradually become strong enough to actually hold the bottles without any assistance.


Answer by  Deepz (121)

It depends on the age you start using the feeding bottle. They do start touching the bottle at the age of six months. Babies usually show their age for learning by trying to hold, this can be with back side of their hand. But they will gradually learn to hold it properly. 12- 16 months is the best time to teach this

Babies cannot hold a bottle until they can hold their own toys. This shouldn't happen until at least three to four months of age. And do not allow a baby to feed unsupervised, even if they can hold the bottle on their own.


Answer by  Roland27 (16334)

You cannot really train a baby how to hold their bottle. Around 4 months of age or so they should start to try to hold it on their own.

Around four or five months, babies can begin to hold thier bottles with assistance. When they start to grab at things, place their hands on the bottle. This will help.

There isn't a way to train infants to hold their own bottle, it's just something that eventually, will come naturally to them, which is usually around the age of 10-14 months.

When my son was around the age of 3.5 months, he starting trying to put his hand on the bottles, so each time after that I would place his hands on there to help. Now at 4 months he hold it for a few minutes before he drops it.


Answer by  snessia (991)

I don't know if you really train a baby. By 4-6 months, babies may be able to start holding the bottle a bit while you feed them. By 9-12 months, a baby may be able to hold their own bottle and feed themselves, but always keep an eye on them.
