Re: Selfish with your baby
I feel the same way with baby #5 as I did with baby #1 - the only difference is I don't have quite as much free time as I did with #1. But, I feel like I have appreciated that time and those protective feelings even more with each subsequent baby.
I did let people hold the baby if they came to our house and had washed their hands, but not THAT many people visited. My MIL isn't a real baby person, so it never mattered much on that front. We got really good at telling people we don't pass the baby around when we were at religious services, etc. Nothing personal, but we don't pass them around. Some people were a little put off, but its our baby and we have to deal with them getting riled up, being sick and everything else so we get to decide.
