My son is 9 months old now. He is my second child, and fortunately for me, I learned a great deal about how easy it is to spoil your sweet babies with the first one. HOWEVER, he is his father's first baby and despite my discouragement, he insisted that the baby sleep with us at night, and immediately respond to his every beck and call. Well, his father is no longer actively coparenting and now I'm stuck with a rotton lil sweetheart who wants nothing other than to be on Mommy's hip. HOW CAN I BREAK THIS VICIOUS HABIT?!?!?! I'm losing my mind!! 😭😰😫😤

That's not spoiled... that's normal. He just wants his mom (as he should at this age). Baby wear if you can and set him down when you need to, but talk to him when you can't hold him and try to keep those periods short if he is freaking out. They aren't like that forever.
