D is starting to pull her bottle to her mouth when I hold it in front of her and then she will hold for a short while but very well yet. Its not a well controlled hold anyways but its new.

What about your LO? if your BF does baby hold on to your breast? My babies that I did BF would sometimes put their hand on my breast.

Adelyn has been grabbing at the bottle lately. There were a few times she would place both hands on it but as soon as we let the bottle go it would slip through her hands. So she hasn't really grasped the idea of holding onto the bottle but she has "held" it.

Whenever he's nursing he grabs little fistfulls of breast tissue, or sometimes my shirt. I try to get him to grab my shirt, a burp cloth, or a nursing necklace since those little razor nails hurt!

Ryan holds either my breast or my shirt, it's usually about half and half. Sometimes he even holds the breast that I'm not feeding him with, it's curious and funny.

No, but he is constantly grabbing onto DH's silver chain whenever he holds him close. He has a pretty good grip on it too, it's a bit tricky prying his fingers open so he'll let go!

Audrey thinks she can, she just can't support the weight of it yet, haha. She grabs onto everything though, I am worried about the safety of my glasses.

T tries to hold it, and if it's light enough he can sometimes for a little bit, but it's definitely not for very long. He does hold me too when I'm feeding him. He's got quite the tight grip (especially on hair). LOL

She held an empty water bottle the other day. She is usually too busy holding my shirt to hold my boob but when she does get a hold of it she grabs it in a fist.

Thanks so much Claire for my awesome siggy
