Patience and Persistence

Update: our son has begun to hold his bottle when eating! He will not pick it up, but once I get it into his mouth, I can put his hands around the bottle and he will hold it. Then, he will not only hold it for the duration of the liquid, but can also regulate it himself, pulling it away from his mouth for a breather, then put it back when he's ready for more. I think he's beginning to appreciate the freedom that comes with doing it himself. Thanks to those of you who told me to be persistent!

  1. You are just not threatening him enough. If you scare him the right way he’ll do anything you want.
