When can my baby start to drink on its own?

Most babies will soon want to hold their bottle while they’re drinking, even from a very young age. This might look as if your baby wants to drink on its own. However, it’s not yet physically capable until about six months, when it can sit up straight. Difrax has handy tools to help your baby to drink independently: the easy-grip baby bottle and the easy-grip handles for the Natural and Wide bottles.

Drinking from the baby bottle independently

The easy-grip baby bottle has an opening in the middle, making it easy for your baby to hold their bottle without help. Learning to drink independently with the easy-grip baby bottle is good for the development of your baby’s motor skills.
