So the pediatrician told me that you can't spoil a baby and that when they're about 6 months old, that's the time to let them be more independent, otherwise they WILL get spoiled. My child is spoiled rotten. From the time he was born til 3 months, he wouldn't let me sit down with him, I had to stand. Now he will let me sit with him. But he is now 6 months old and has learned that when I put him down in his walker to play, he will play for a bit and then look up at me, pitch a fit, and reach his arms out towards me for me to pick him up. Does anyone know a good way to break this habit? Does leaving him to cry and ignoring him really help or does it make the situation worse and the habit harder to break?
