Holding the bottlePosted: February 24, 2009
This morning as I was feeding Cooper with a bottle, he decided he was going to take a stab at it. He reached both of his tiny hands on either side of the bottle and held it (without my help). He has done this before, but then he took it a step farther. Cooper directed the nipple of the bottle into his mouth and he began sucking. I could not believe it! Well, he was not successful at actually getting the milk to come through the nipple because he was not holding the bottle at a high enough angle, but it was close! I removed the bottle from him and started feeding him again, but he started to fuss and scream. I had to let him hold the bottle to continue feeding him. He wanted to feed himself. So I just held the end of the bottle up so he could finish the last ounce of milk. My little boy is not so little anymore. Just another reminder that they grow up way too fast!
