I had a family Christmas party this weekend and it was the first time that they were all meeting Nicolas. So, of course he was completely overwhelmed and overstimulated and cried alot. A couple of my relatives would continue holding him even when he was crying. I felt really bad and wanted to take him back, which I did eventually, but didn't want to offend anyone and make them think I didn't trust them to calm him down. How do you handle situations like this? Take your kid and calm them down right away or let them try for awhile and then take him? I let them try for a bit and when it didn't work, I took him. But I felt so bad listening to him cry...
