Nigerian mum based in the UK Onyi Chiedozie shares with the world that her daughter Amara, learnt to feed herself at just 3 days old.
Daily Mail UK reports that the child took matters into her own hands when she “grabbed” her bottle during a feed and held it to her mouth unaided.
Baby Amara did it at three days old, and now three weeks old, she regularly holds her bottle and pushes it aside when she is full.
Her 20-year-old mum says she uses a combination of breast and bottle feeding.
“She was crying as she was hungry and when we were feeding, she started shaking, then she just grabbed the bottle and she was holding it by herself.
We couldn’t believe it because babies don’t normally do it that young, I’m so shocked that I have been documenting it every day.
Whenever we go to appointments, we take pictures of her doing it.” Onyi says.
Amara was born to a single mother, on August 3rd at the Queen’s Hospital, Romford, Essex, weighing 6lb 3oz.
“‘I just think she has a lot of strength, I’m not sure why though as she wasn’t particularly heavy when she was born. When she doesn’t want it she will push it away. She isn’t strong enough to throw it away, but she does push it away, like she does with her dummy. If she is really hungry, she starts shaking, then she will just grab the bottle as you give it to her.” she shares.
