M baby is 2 months old and wants to be held all the time. No matter where I put her down within 5 min she is crying. Is this just typical baby behavior or am I the one causing the problem by picking her up constantly?

My baby has been like this since week 3. I think it is normal. They are used the womb. The only thing that is saving me is a sling I have. My baby won't even let me lay him down to sleep so I know how you feel.

Mine wants to be held a lot too, and sometimes won't sleep anywhere but on me. I know it's not the same as being able to put the baby down completely, but are you wearing her sometimes so that you can get some hands free time? I was using a baby Bjorne (which I still like), but recently discovered my little one gets really comfy in the moby wrap.

It's normal. Remember that babies are used to being with their mothers 24/7 then they get tossed out in the real world and are expected to just change to not being with her all the time.. then there's the fact that they haven't developed object permanence yet which means that when something goes out of sight, they don't know if it's ever coming back. They just know it was there and then it wasn't. You can't spoil a baby by holding it all the time. That's an old wives' tale. Things will calm down when object permanence develops and they start doing more things on their own.

My baby loves to be held all the time but not just that she also wants whoever is holding her to be up and moving around. I love holding her but sometimes I just need to be able to put her down. On the up side I'm sure she's toning my arm muscles
