I never understand why mothers think this is bad. I guess I think back to my own kids when they were little. My son was not like this, my daughter was. She was such a cling-on. I got a sling and carried her, yes even when she was that big. She just wanted to be with me all the time. I held her as much as she wanted. I also never let her cry as a baby. I always figured she had a dirty diaper, was hungry, or just needed a hug. Well, now she's 26, and lives far away, has a booming career as a designer, and we are very close still.
