My son has recently started being really clingy. He wants to be held and rocked all the time and I'm worried we are spoiling him. But I'm also concerned that he is too young to have to cry excessively. Any ideas?

Continue to hold baby and love baby in whatever way baby asks. The studies state the more you answer their cries in the beginning and come to them the less they cry and 'demand' attention later in infancy. I, personally, have found this to be true as well as the other mothers I know that attended to their baby's cries and need for attention as baby asked. Good Luck and love and hold that baby as often as he needs.
