Hi everyone! My almost 5 month old daughter, loves to be held. I know that some say it's because she's still an infant and they just love to be near you, which is fine. I love her more than anything, and I don't mind holding her, but it's starting to get really tricky. I feel like she won't enjoy anything else but being in my arms, if I don't try and break her out of this habit. And I have to be standing. If I try to sit while I'm holding her, she'll start to cry.
There are days though, where she'll let me put her down on a play gym, or in her jumper or sit up her on her play mat. But, she does this for maybe 15 to 20 minutes, then she's already looking for me to pick her up. I've tried letting her cry it out (breaks my heart), but that doesn't seem to be working either.
Anyone have some advice?
