Worried You'll Spoil Your Newborn? Put the Baby Down & Read This!

Many people say you can hold your newborn too much or spoil them by doing so. This is not the case! During the first few months of your baby's life, they need the reassurance and TLC you provide by holding them and attending to their needs – always! It provides the early learning of trust. They don't have the mental capability of being spoiled. 

This time is the best possible to bond with your baby. As the first few months pass, your baby will start to understand more and then you can begin teaching interdependence. So go ahead: hold and love that baby as much as possible!

Now go pick that baby back up!
