I have a 3 month old baby girl. I cant seem to get anything done and thought by now she would be getting a little better at sitting alone. She cries when i put her down. its doesnt seem to be colic. Putting her down and letting her cry does not help too much either, just makes me anxious. Does anyone have any suggestions on what i can do to get some peace or if it is abnormal for a three month old?Answer Question

No it is not abnormal for a 3 month old or even a 9 month old to be clingy. A baby NEEDS to be held and not left to cry. If you ever tried to let your LO CIO or left the child to cry this could be a major part in the behavior now. The best thing you can ever do is to attend to baby's needs the minute she lets you know (cries) by doing so you are building a bond of trust that allows baby to know you will be there when needed no matter what which leads to less crying. My advice to you is to rebuild that level of trust so that you will have a baby that doesn't cry as much. Good Luck and attend to baby as soon as you hear her cry and perhaps invest in a sling. Motherhood is definitely not easy nor convenient at times sorry but there are no real shortcuts.

micahsmommy you may want to read up on those doctors because not a one says that you can spoil an infant by holding them too much. Another thing doctors agree upon is at 3 months you can never let them CIO. OP you will never "regret" holding your baby all the time either, that is just absurd to think that way!! Hold baby, love baby, attend to baby's need in a prompt manner and relish in the fact that you can have it all, great children that were given all the love and attention they deserve. I have 3 extremely independent older children that never threw a "screaming fit" and were attended to in the way anon described. There is a lot of truth in what anon 7:19 said just check around for yourself.
