EDIT as in holding a baby.


If you think a baby can be spoiled, you probably don't need kids.

If you think everything is cut and dry,(unless you are talking about spoiling with love, then I would agree)... you probably don't need kids either.
Experts disagree with your blanket statement.

I think you'd have to define spoiling. Babies definitely do get used to a certain treatment. By six months, my daughter HAD to be walked to sleep, then cuddle all night and boob every time she woke up because that's what we did when she was new. Some would call that a "spoiled baby." It was really hard to break her out of it, and even at 20 months, she will still beg to be walked and try to throw herself sideways in my arms before bed and I haven't done that since she was like eight months old, so I know she developed some very deep preferences during infancy.

Agree! So much talk about sperm donors, but I see so many women that are just as bad at being "moms."

Probably was the operative word, which would allow for the gray.

Wrong.  You can get a baby waaaaaaaayyyyy too comfortable being held all the time.  I know the post you're going on about and that mother needs to take care of her baby herself since she very likely created the situation.  It's beyond stupid to tell a sitter or daycare worker to wear one baby all day or hold one baby all day because her mother got her used to being held.  At that point, mommy either needs to break the habit or quit her job and take care of the mess she made.

 I agree with this.
