I love my daughter with all my heart. She's a great joy in my life. But, she is spoiled. She's not happy with any toy for more than a few minutes. She HAS to be held or she will scream and scream and scream and not just scream for a couple minutes and it's over, no, she can go an hour if we'd let her. It's not just a cry either, she's legitimately yelling at us. She's only 3 months old. I know it takes a child 3 days to learn a new routine but I don't know how to break her of this other than the "let her cry it out" plan which I hate. I can't just let my child cry. I have nothing against mother's who do it I commend you for your willpower but it's just not in me. My first child, my son was so much easier. He was always calm and picked up on things quickly, he was independent from the start. But my daughter well...she's just the opposite lol. We did the biggest mistake of letting her sleep in our bed and now of course we can't break her of it. She has to be held when she's sleeping (sometimes I can slide her off me and she'll stay asleep but not all the time) and she has to be held when she's awake or she will yell. She already throws tantrums when nothing can possibly be wrong with her. So basically, how do I break her of this?? We can't just keep catering to her. I love her, I love holding her but I also need to accomplish things and eventually she's going to need to learn a certain sense of independence. So, if you had a similar problem how were you able to over come it? And please don't tell me to let her cry it out lol my fiance's been fighting for that but I just can't do it.
