Pick him up. You CANNOT spoil a baby. Look up the fourth trimester :) he needs you near and his only eat of communicating with you is through crying.

I agree! I do not advocate CIO. For me personally, it seems so cruel and pointless.

Quoting KelliansMom:

He's way too young to be CIO.  He has needs and they need to be met.

I tried taking that advice and letting her "cry it out" a few times, but I just couldn't do it.  I couldn't stick with it.  Plus, I felt bad for our neighbors.  We lived in a townhouse, and I know the walls weren't that thick!

Oh gosh....I tried it with my son because the dr just kept on and on about how I needed to do this.  My dh agreed.  Well, I tried it and I cried and cried and then went and picked up my baby.  I told my dh if he didn't like it to get his crap together and go live with the dr.  lol  It tore my nerves up!!!  lol

 You are right. Crying is your son's way of communicating with you. Ignoring those cries is teaching him he's not being heard.
