Reply to Mighty Max (10 mos) doesn’t hold his own bottle yet

Definitely start solids, especially finger foods. Feeding himself will start encouraging independence. But my son had the same issue and during bottle time i would have him on my lap facing forward and i would help him hold the bottle. So i would hold his grasp around the bottle took a while but he got the hang. But i also have never heard anything about not starting solids if child can’t hold bottle.
