Re: Selfish with your baby
I felt this way with all five of my babies. I think it's a normal, protective response. Along the way, I've learned how to share my babies with people I don't mind holding them, but when I go out (church, store, library, etc.), I always put the baby in the sling so that I don't have to fend off other peoples' loving advances. WRT to unwanted advice, here's what my mom told me: "Everyone has their opinions on the best way to raise your baby. Smile and nod, thank them for their interest in your baby, and then go home and do exactly what YOU want to do, and feel NO guilt about doing it."
