  • no there's nothing wrong with not holding your baby all the time.. you can put them on a play mat and let them go at it.

  • No, they need some time to be put down and try to move on their own too.

  • In other countries they have the baby with them all the time! Swaddled and in a sling.

  • No not at all. I held my son a lot of hte time, but he was also content being in his rocker, bouncy chair, or proped up next to me on a pillow or on his play mat. I think it's a good thing for them to learn how to self sooth and learn how to be content on their own as well as in your safe arms. Congrats to you!

  • Personally, I feel that it's good to not be held all the time, most cases they get to clingy theirs no reason why you can't enjoy some snuggle time but also let them be not held.
    Good luck to you!!

  • It's good for them to be down on the floor to develop their muscles, or learn to be soothed by the swing or bouncy chair.
