Sometimes think that having a maid might have the kids become more dependent and pampered, which is not a good thing. Amilie had started to hold her milk bottle before she was 1 year old. Izaac, 1 year 3 months had recently started holding his bottle. That's after I 'nagged' a lot of times (almost scolded) at the maid to let Izaac hold the bottle. And I had to have a sudden check to make sure she didn't hold it for him (and carry him).
Finally, Izaac's is holding the bottle. Here's a picture of him holding the bottle.

Look at Amilie when she first hold her bottle.
