  • You cannot spoil a baby that little.
    sometimes, they just need you. DD is 6 months old and every once in awhile, she wakes up at night and wants to just be cuddled. Sometimes she does that and plays with one of her toys etc.

  • I agree with Princessofscots- at that age a baby can't be spoiled. I think that applies for at least the first six months. Sometimes they just need extra comfort for reasons you can't determine. I am 30 years old and I don't always sleep through the night either, sometimes you just wake up and have trouble settling back down for whatever reason, whether you are an adult or a wee baby. I have also read that a baby so young doesnt have the mental ability to try and manipulate mama by crying so if they cry it is a good bet they need you.

  • Get ready! From what I've seen, newborns are pretty cooperative in the first 2wks-1mos. Then they wake up and don't like it one bit! All they do is sleep those first few weeks. Once they're up, get ready for this type of behavior. Mine and my sister's newborns were the same exact way. Mine didn't sleep for 5+ hrs. until she was 5 mos.
