When my baby was born the doctor told me to pick her up every time she cried, that it would teach her security. She told me it wouldn't spoil her but oh was she wrong. Now she wants to be held all the time. I have tried to let her cry it out but she sometimes cries for 20 minutes at a time and I know that thier is nothing wrong with her. What should I do??Answer Question

The baby understands the differants between being held and not being held. That is spoiled in my book. Your just going to have to slowly get her use to not being held as much. Do you have a swing. That might help.
