My almost 2 month old son has recently taken on very limiting behaviors. Its difficult to go anywhere or do anything as where before he would either sleep or be content as long as he were full. Anytime he goes in the carseat to go anywhere he screams at the top of his lungs the whole way(unless hes exhausted and will then crash for minutes at a time with yelling in between) and settles as soon as he's taken out. Also at home during the day soon as I put him in bed after hes fallen asleep he wakes up and starts crying. Ive read that newborns do not mentally develop enough to learn bad habits until they reach 3 months of age. But as long as he's in my arms he's fine. I dont take well to the whole letting him cry thing.. I mean I will for a minute or so but I cant stand to hear him cry when I could comfort him and make him stop(my husband hates that I give in). By the way Im a first time, 20 year old mom. Help!!!
