One 18-day old baby in America has stunned his parents after appearing to be able to hold up his bottle and feed himself.
Little Adam Power, who was only born earlier this month, has been captured on camera wrapping his tiny grip around the bottle and gulping down his milk.
His mum Navy, from New Jersey, posted a video of the impressive achievement on YouTube, where she explained he was able to hold the bottle and tilt it towards his head himself.
This is despite most babies not developing the motor skills needed to feed themselves until they are between six and 10 months old.
Navy said she first noticed newborn Adam could hold up his own bottle when the tot’s granny placed his hands on it as she fed him.
She then moved her own hands away from the bottle and saw that Adam started to grip his hands around it and hold it up himself as he glugged from the teat.
Now the first-time mum has set up a YouTube channel for her son, called Adam Adventures, where she hopes to post more footage of his early achievements.
