Can You Spoil Your Newborn?

Can You Spoil Your Newborn? - Pregnancy - 2024

A newborn isn’t manipulative. They cry because they need you. Our job as parents is to listen to our instincts and feed, comfort, and love the little guy as needed. ⁣

When you respond to your baby’s cries, he learns, “this place is awesome!”⁣

Believe it or not, picking up your baby when he cries, leads to independence. Why? Because when you meet your baby’s needs, she develops a sense of security and confidence, which in turn leads to independence ⁣

As your baby gets older, crying will not always be because she needs you. She’ll have wants, “I want your glasses.” “I want your hot coffee.” … and that’s when you’ll need to set limits and teach your baby… “I love you, but No. “You can’t have my glasses, the knife, the hot coffee.”⁣

  1. Alright here comes when your baby is about 1 and is always crying cause they want to be held🤦🏾‍♀️. Your baby is not a purse set limits people

  2. Thank you ❤️ I need to hear this daily right now. Surprisingly, the ig community has been my best support on this matter

  3. Don’t sit & hold your baby all day then put them in daycare & expect them to sit & hold them the entire time.. I can assure you your baby will be left crying..

  4. I’m so happy that I did all of these! Thanks to COVID-19, nobody could come to visit us and advise me how I was spoiling my newborn! 😂
