  • Well that depends on what you mean. Most babies demand a lot of attention? What are the main issues?

  • Give them attention, what else do you expect us to say? If it gets to the point where you can't handle them, put them in a baby carrier and do what you gotta do.

  • What's the problem? Babies love their mommies and want their attention.

  • according to your profile, your baby is really young. give her attention. like a pp said if you can't handle it take a break for a few minutes. if it gets really bad call a friend or family member for help. that's just life with kids, they are always wanting your attention no matter how old they are.

  • Babies crave attention--it's one of their basic needs. Get a wrap or sling, wear your baby, and give them the attention they need. Babies aren't trying to manipulate you, they just really actually need to be held or soothed.
