Q.

baby''s spoiled behaviour

my baby boy is 14 months old. he can hold his bottle and feed himself, my concern is recently when he is full he throws away his bottle, i''ve watched him a few times, he kind of conciously throws it down on the ground and carry on with something else. i''ve tried to shake my head and tell him it''s wrong, it doesn''t seem to help, is this normal way of communicating for kids this age

This is normal behaviour for a baby of this age. Speak to him and try to show him that he should not throw his bottle down like this. Pick up the bottle if he throws it down and put it back into his hands. He will probably want to make a game of it, but this is just a stage that he is going through now and it will soon pass.
