  • I don't think being super affectionate to your kid is the same as spoiling. Spoiling them is when you give them whatever they want that's not necessarily good for them, or don't discipline or reward bad behavior. I don't think it's ever bad to give extra affection. I'm going to be a first-time mom, so can't speak from personal experience, but I've heard a lot of women say they felt like you: how can I have enough love for both? And they always say when they had their baby, they found out they could have more love than they imagined. Don't worry! You'll be a great momma to two!
