Never listen to anyone telling you not to hold your babies too much, or not to respond to their cries because they will get used to that. To what? To being loved and cared for? Really? We owe it to our children, we bring them into this world that is not always an easy place to live in. The least we can do for them is offer as much love as we can while they are still little and dependent on us. Because, let’s face it, once they grow up the amount of love they receive from others is very unlikely going to increase, quite the opposite I’d think. So “spoil” them all you want while you still can. Show them that people who should care about them… actually do. And never listen to those who, probably, never received enough love in their childhood themselves, otherwise why would they be suggesting such an unnatural thing as ignoring your own children’s cries for help and attention?
