August 22, 2014 – Pictures: 3 Days Old Nigerian Newborn Baby Girl Feeding Herself By Holding Milk Bottle Shocks Essex Doctors
Meet little baby Amara, the daughter of a 20-year-old UK-based student, Onyi Chiedozie.
The wonder baby pictured above has been feeding herself when she was just 3 days old.
She was delivered at Queen’s Hospital in Romford Essex on the 3rd of August 2014 weighing 6 pounds and 3 ounces.
Amazed by her daughter’s extra ordinary ability, Onyi decided to tell the world her story.
According to the mother of this wonder baby, she took matters into her own hands when she ‘grabbed’ her bottle during a feeding and held it to her mouth unaided.
It first happened 72 hours after her birth and now at 3 weeks old.
Baby Amara regularly holds her bottle and pushes it aside when she is full.
Hear what Amara’s mother said about her daughter:
‘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. It’s unbelievable, even nurses are really surprised – when my health support nurse came she was shocked as well., she couldn’t believe that this could happen. Whenever we go to appointments, we take pictures of her doing it. The midwife and even the doctor we had an appointment with on Saturday was actually amazed – they all couldn’t believe it.
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.’
