And how much do you hold him or her?
I hold my baby often, but sometimes I let her lay down on her own so I can get things done around the house.

We never even used the phrase put the baby down (to some people that means put the baby in a bed to sleep). When my kids were babies car seats didn't have handles and it was difficult to remove them and carry them. So people held their infants. I had a sling and got things done with my oldest two in a sling. When my youngest was born my leg was paralyzed during the birth. My husband filed for divorce the next day. We lived in a trilevel house and I couldn't walk. I used a wheelchair on the main level and used a wrap to hold him on my chest/lap. On the bedroom floor I scooted and dragged him on a blanket. I had a little bed next to my bed for him. My 8 & 5 yo helped.

I never made a point to be contantly holding my kids. I held them when I was feeding them and would play with them a bit each day but otherwise they were on the floor or doing something else. Right now my 2 month old is lying on his blanket in the middle of the floor and sucking on his hand. I was feeding him and he fell asleep so I put him down to finish what I was doing before he decided he wanted to eat. He still has half a bottle left to finish (which I assume he now wants so I have to go finish feeding him).
