The astonished parents of a newborn whose 18-day-old bub is already feeding himself, shared a clip of their little one's feat to YouTube - and it's truly incredible viewing.

Baby Adam appears in the video, holding his bottle masterfully. Cradled in a loved one's arms, his little eye opens - just a crack - as his excited relatives watch on.

It's a pretty impressive accomplishment for such a tiny baby!

Speaking to The Mirror, Adam's proud Mum, Navy, explained: "It all started when his grandmother took his adorable tiny hands and placed them on the bottle on April 13, when he was just one week old. To her surprise - and everyone else's - Adam held his own bottle.

"We thought it was just a one time thing," Navy continued, "so we didn't think anything of it until a week later, he does it again.

"As you can see, we were amazed how his little brain and body coordinate, so my husband and I wanted to share his amazing infant-mind-processing-ability to the world."

A day later, Adam's parents filmed their little one feeding himself again - but this time, he's shown dropping the bottle when he's finished.

Along with his impressive grip and coordination skills, Navy said her little boy, "loves to stretch like a lazy kitty kit" - and that's already trying to flip himself over.

That's one strong little boy - we wonder what he'll master next.
