once all the needs are taken care of: diaper change, fed, held..ect. is it okay to let your baby cry it out sometimes. my 4 1/2 month old is teething and likes to be held and im trying to get her away from the holding thing. i give her teething medicine for the teething. sometimes i just cant hold her and sometimes she doesnt need to be held. well my mother-in-law practically said that if i wanted to be a mom my natural instinct should be to hold and soothe her. doctors say its ok to let them cry it out sometimes. it hurts my feelings to be told that im not acting like a mom, when i do everything and i never ever get a break. im the only one in the house that does dishes laundry, takes care of the baby. i just need to know from other moms that its okay to do this or else im going to just stop doing ne house work and be a lazy mom. cuz i honestly cant take it ne more. im tired of being told that if im a mom i can do this or that bc his mom did it at 14 when she was a mom.
