Carry or Cry
My new baby girl is about one month old now and wants to be held ALL the time!
While I initially thought she was too young to understand the concept of wanting to be carried, the days have proven that she really does know what she wants and isn't afraid to demand it. She will cry at a super, high-pitched tone for as long as it takes! The moment she is held, she miraculously becomes quiet in less than a minute. When I put her down again, she starts crying, even if she is asleep. It's getting to a point that is making me cry too.
I don't know what to do. With two other kids in the house plus everything else that goes on during the day, having a baby in my arms all day is simply not possible. I read online that in the first few months, you should hold your baby as much as she needs but her paediatrician is telling me that it is a habit she will develop from now and that I should let her cry until she gets over it.
I'm beyond frustrated and need help and advice!
