My baby girl cries unless I am holding her and because of this I have been holding her when she naps. She was really colicky for 6 weeks and now it is getting better but she needs me to hold her 24/7. She does sleep in her bed fine at night though. Is this how newborns are supposed to be or am I starting a bad habit. I would like to put her down either to sleep or play alone so I can do something without her screaming at me. Need help, I was told I couldn't spoil a newborn so maybe this is normal behavior, I need to return to work for 15 days and she will be watched by grandma during those days so I am scared cuz unless grandma is willing to hold her ALL DAY she will cry.
