I'm embarrassed to admit it, but DD will not hold her own bottle to drink her milk, but can happily sip water from one. She doesn't like sippy cups either. How can I coax her into doing it herself? I have picked moments in the day when it's time for her milk and guided her to hold on to the handles and lay down propped on a pillow so she can tip it back properly, but she does it for a minute then throws a strop and then refuses to drink anymore. She would rather miss out on her milk than actually do it herself. Please any suggestions would be gladly received.
I never expected mine to hold the bottle and quite liked the cuddle time. They used cups by themselves so it wasn't an issue. DD stopped with bottles for milk by 15 months and ds was off them by 11 months
Thanks everyone. Thisisyesterday - you're right I do enjoy the cuddle time we have and seeing as time is just flashing by I should make the most of those rare moments she actually needs and wants me and isn't shooting off causing mischief . It's just the usual comparing and contrasting with others her age that makes me all paranoid. I'll force myself to turn a blind eye.
