“Do you pick him up every time he cries?”
Yes. Why wouldn’t I?
As long as I am physically able, I sure do.
People are obsessed with over-complicating a child’s needs.
The need to be held, hugged and loved is just as important as the need to be changed and fed, even more so.
If you were upset and crying in a room with the ONE person who is supposed to take care of you and love you most in the world, and they just stood there ignoring you.. how would that make you feel?
If you’ve been in that situation, you know.
I don’t care if my kid is 2 or 10 or 35… I’m their mama, and I will always hold them if they need me to.
