Over the holidays we visited the inlaws and my family. Baby did well but was of course had moments of crying or fussiness- mainly because of change in routine and also because I couldn't always attend to his needs right away like I would at home. Anyways there was a few times he would get fussy when someone was holding him and I would go get him to fix whatever was wrong. People kept telling me it was fine if he fusses and cries because that is what babies do and didn't always want to give him to me. A few times I got pissed and had to demand they hand him over! this sometimes caused friction. I had to tell a few people to let me deal with my baby how I choose and I had no intention of ignoring his fusses.

It really annoyed me that people kept wanting me to let him fuss or cry because THEY thought it was normal for babies to do that and that he would stop on his own because nothing was wrong. I know my baby. He basically only fusses or cries when he needs something. Sure sometimes it is just gas or tiredness but then he still likes pats on the back, tummy rubs and cuddles- not to be ignored! He feeds often still so usually it was hunger fussiness but people keep thinking he couldn't be eating that often. I do not like unsolicited advice especially when it is inaccurate!!

I hear ya! It helps if your DH is supportive. Mine will back my up if I say DD needs x or y. When it's his family, I let him take the lead since he can me more blunt with them than I feel I can.
