My niece keeps sayin' on fb her baby is fussy but she doesn't want to hold him and spoil him. It drives me nuts. She is a first time mom at home with her mom (my sil that lacks skills as a mom).

I haven't said anything. Not really my place but i did today. I commented and told her she couldn't spoil him with a :) .

I hold to the notion that you can't. What say you?

You can never spoil a baby, I hold my 4 month old all day if he wants, the dishes can wait. They are only little for so long.

Yes you can I have 3 grandkids that are spoiled to death, told my daughter wait till they become teenagers which they are now. She is now going crazy about all of their demands.

No. They're pretty big before you can truly spoil them. I try, though, I try.

depends on what age the 'baby" actually is.  if he's an infant, no, you can't spoil him.  if he's 2...yes, you definitely can.

Nope, babies have needs.  Yes, even being held is a NEED for a baby.

I think you can but when their itty bitty no. Once they reach 1 to 1 1/2 it can happen.
