TWO SENSE TUESDAYS #19...Holding baby

Being a new mother I seem to get a lot of advice, which can be helpful, but is also very frustrating when it's from people who are insistent that their way is the BEST way. I also get advice (because I'm an adoptive mother) from those who think that my son is just a stand-in until I get "the real thing."

Each week I will post a new question. I'd love it if you'd play along and offer us new mothers your pearls of wisdom.

HERE IS THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

HOW MUCH HOLDING IS TOO MUCH? IS THERE AN AGE WHEN YOU NEED TO STOP CARRYING YOUR BABY AS MUCH?

I don't think you can hold your baby too much.
But your baby can become spoiled by 5 months, in my experience.

So when are you going to give your two cents on your questions? Just curious!

I hold mine as much as possible!! There will come a day when they won't want you to and that is so sad to me!! I guess I don't mean hold them in the sense of toting them around everywhere....

I 'fight' my 9 yr. old son for hugs and kisses now! :(
