TIME TO GO SOLO

Area of Development

Social & Behavioral Skills

Objective

Now it’s time for your child to feed himself/herself and to eat independently. It’s messy but it’s fun too!

Description

Now that your baby is slowly growing up and becoming more independent, they will start holding their bottle as they drink milk and at this age will be able to drink from a cup using both hands. This is another big milestone so remember to be patient and not take the easy way out by propping the bottle in their mouths. And don’t worry; depending on their motor skills, they’ll gradually do it themselves.
