  • That is not being spoiled. That is seeking the feeling of security which all humans need.

  • You can't spoil a baby that small, don't worry about that at all! You're just being a good mom :)

  • it's ok to be with your baby. once your baby falls asleep, keep him/her in the crib. eventually your baby will get used to it.

  • You can't spoil a baby that young. It's not possible.

  • He is normal and you are doing great! He doesn't need to sleep alone in a room. Babies can sleep anywhere in arms, in a sling/wrap, baby seat, floor, bed etc. If he falls asleep in arms look for the arms and legs to be completely limp and his face relaxed before you put him down.
