Since the moment my baby was born the nurses let me know she was a hard burper. So she's 8 weeks old already and according to everyone I'm holding her too much. When she eats I have to burp her and it can take up to 20 minutes sometimes and since she is a spitter I burp every ounce she drinks. You can see how that can take up so much time. I feel that right when were done feeding I'm right back at it again since she still eats every 2 hours. When I put her down she wakes right back up and cries until I pick her up. I read somewhere that at this point in her age, babies don't know manipulation so it's okay to let them cry for just a minute or two but pick them up after because it's still at the "building trust" stage. Am I raising a spoiled baby already, or is this okay?
