Do you think it's possible to hold a baby too much?

Yes & no. I don't believe it spoils them, but always holding a baby that is starting to be curious and slightly mobile IMO is holding them back from being curious & mobile (if that makes sense).

No, as long as babe enjoys it. Our last one was super cuddly and spent his first 3 months in a sling. Now he's an independent 13 month old.

Hard question. I think that a baby can get spoiled and fails to thrive (tummy time and self entertainment) if held too often. As a newborn to about 3 months I think they need that bonding time though.

No, and if it is possible then I am guilty and proud of it!

No and like PP's they need their tummy time. To hit their milestones.

No, but I agree with the milestone thing if the baby is carried ALL.THE.TIME til it is like 1 or something. Constant holding is not my thing though.

I think it depends on what age the baby is.

I don't think so, but I don't know. I basically just listen to what the baby needs and go from there. My first was restless if I held her and loved the swing for the first 4 months of her life. I'd hold her when I nursed her (obviously) or bottle-fed her (when my milk ran out around 3 mos--I have a breast deformity). Then around 5-6 months I'd play with her on the ground and sometimes she'd want to just sit in my (ever-disappearing preggo) lap. My second was colicky and had to be held. My 3rd was chill and just did whatever. So I held him when I wanted to, or when he wanted to be held, and other than that he was on his own.. or getting attacked by the older 2.

My last baby, however, has been very high-needs. He's grumpy and always wants to be held. I attribute this to a few things, even though they might not be the real reasons: his super-fast birth with shoulder dystocia and the fact that he had to have surgery when he was 6 months old. I try to give him what he needs or wants (cuddles, holding him while I walk around) but sometimes he just has to cry.
