Re: Are we hurting her by holding her too much?
If your lo is meeting his developmental goals, and your Dr will tell you. then dont worry.
I have held all 4 of mine to my mothers aggravation, and they were healthy and happy and often ahead of their goals.
My mother still gives me grief for holding my lo. And flames me slinging him when he is asleep instead of laying him down to sleep, I think it is because she wants to hold him. But with 3 others running around he is safer and sleeps better in his sling close to me.
You have to do what works best for you and your lo.
