So I'ma 1st timer and my dd is 6wks old. Last night I went to a friends house that I haven't seen in years! Got introduced to her 15month old daughter, yadda yadda. Long story short dd got fussy after I put her down for awhile (like always) so I pulled out my carrier, settled her in and she quit cryin, just wanted to be held. Well I get told that by buyin that I just made my life hell because dd is gonna be needy and I'm always gonna have to carry her; holding dd too much will spoil her and cause seperation anxiety.
Is this true? I thought that the more physical contact the better. When I was in college I read up on a study where they had 2 groups of infants with physical needs being met but human contact as the variable. The children w/o physical contact did significantly poorer than the one with. So askin mom's with a bit more experience: Am I makin my future hell by carrying/holding dd whenever she wants?
Thanks in advance for any input. =)
