Re: Spoiling Child?? Help!
You cannot spoil your 2.5 week old baby. He is not manipulating you. Period. It's just not possible. Tune everyone else out and keep listening to your instinct. My answer to the "let them cry" debate is absolutely no. Especially at that age. There's a reason mothers find it so hard to do that because they aren't supposed to! Babies are supposed to want to be with their mothers. It's their survival instinct and it's perfectly normal.
I know it can be stressful when people are giving you all this crazy advice and you can begin to doubt yourself because of it, but please don't. The best advice I can give you is just to listen to your baby and politely ask everyone else to shut up. HTH ***HUGS***
