YES!! Your baby NEEDS to be held. Personally... I breastfed all my kids to sleep, every time they slept... until they weaned (anywhere from 15 months to 3.25 years). Usually when people say they want their child to 'self soothe' they mean they want to let their kid cry to sleep... and that's not self soothing... that's teaching your children that mom won't be there for them when they need her... and in a baby as young as yours that can cause life long brain damage.

He is pretty little yet to self soothe. Enjoy that cuddle time. Soon they won't want it and you will.
