Is it normal for my three month old son to cry when I hold him? After I put him down, he smiles!

  • Some babies just don't like to be held.

  • Have you been under stress? Babies pick up on our emotions.

  • sometimes my son does the same thing especially if he's been held a lot (for example I have family over) but he doesn't do it all the time. But my little sister didn't like to be held at all when she was a baby so that might be the case with ur little man?!

  • Ha my baby is the same way alot of the times! She doesn't like to cuddle, and if I try to force her to be nice and snuggly she will just shout and flop around untill I put her down with some toys.
    Shes been like this since she was like 2 months (now 7months)

    Lol now I notice that if she is tired, she will start to snuggle in and be really cute and nice then I think she realizes what she's doing then she gets really mad and hits me/pushes away.

    But some days I have to be holding her and walking around my house allll day or else she flips
