She finally started doing it about a week ago - she's holding her own bottle! We are still in awe. She had such strong determination to never touch the bottle, much less hold it. And now, she reaches for it, pulls it to her mouth, and gets irritated if you try to help. I know many moms are thinking about how their children were holding their own bottle at 5 or 6 months, but mine had some real issues with it. So excited for this step! However, she still holds true to her desire to be cuddled in a comfy lap while she eats!
