My lil girl is 3 months old, and I would love to just sit and hold her all day long, which I have to do most of the time because she doesn't like to lay by herself... I feel like she might not be getting enough tummy time, when should babies be able to sit up on their own, and am I doing the right thing by not laying her down and letting her cry? ( It breaks my heart to let her cry!) I also really can't go anywhere because she can't stand to ride in a carseat, I have to put her in the front with me, which is illegal bc of the airbag. I need some advice please....Answer Question

I wouldn't put her in the front seat either. I don't even know what would happen if a cop pulled you over. I used to lay a big blanket on the floor and lay mine on their bellies. If they cried I would let them for fifteen minutes and then do it again a later time.

No matter how much you love her, your love will want to protect her first. So I would be sure and put her car seat in the back. As careful as you might be, you can't control other drivers who might hit your car, making the air bag deploy. This might injure her more than if she were in the back. I have had a minor accident with a young infant and the child was fine bc the carseat was properly installed. My daughter had a recent accident and her child, also was perfectly fine, even tho my daughter was injured. You can't control other people driving, so you will want to protect her most of all. :)

It . I would say that you should let her cry eventually she will grow tried of crying and learn that it is okay to be without her mother. That is what I had to learn to because I didn't like hearing her cry either. For your child safety and so you don't get tickets you should also have her in a child seat when you go somewhere. Imagine if you were to get into an accident and she wasn't in a child seat and died because of it. How would you feel? . It is going to be hardÂ to let her cry but you have to do for her own safety. I don't maybe sit back there with her at first while your husband drives and then give he a toy to comfort her and if all else fails give her a pacifier if you allow it.
