Yes I am the exact same way! While I like looking at other people's babies, I am not going to grab them and offer to hold them! When people ask if I want to hold the baby I say yes of course, but I had them back as soon as they start to fuss. While I felt comfortable with my son (he was a large male baby as well!), I just feel so helpless around other babies. I think it has a lot to do with being comfortable with your own baby and knowing what he or she likes. I have tried to soothe other babies and the things that worked for my son don't always work for them so I just hand them back . My niece was barely 6 pounds and she was probably 6 months old before I truly felt comfortable holding her.
