Can a baby be held too much?

If a baby screams the second its put down and stops the second its picked up, does that mean the baby is held too much?

I'm talking about an infant, less then 6 months old.

A baby can NEVER be held too much.

Plus, I've always heard " 9mths in, 9mths out" meaning for the first 9mths oftheir lives they want to be as close as the were the first 9mths from conception to birth.

I don't think you can hold a baby too much. I wouldn't call that spoiled either.

Nope! I'll never believe in 'spoiling' babies.

I'm going to say yes and no. I have 2 kids (10 and 2 1/2) and I keep my nephew who is almost 4 months old. His parents and grandparents are bad about holding him, even through his naps. He is hard to get down for naps, but I do accomplish it. So I can't really say that they can be held too much, but babies will get used to certain comforts and when that is taken away, of course they aren't going to care for it.
