Is there such thing as over-mothering a 7 month old?
I have a 7 month old daughter who has a very strong connection towards me she has always been this way since around 3 months old. She can be with my mum & my husband but for a very short period of time till she starts crying & holding her arms out for me. I have never left her with anyone else since she was born i have been the main person in her life from the very start. If she cries day or night i attend to her instantly i can not bare letting her cry-it out i tried it once and she went hysteric. I had a few comments from family members saying i am over-mothering her and need to let go a little. I dont want to let her go she is my baby girl. Is it wrong giving her the love she demmands ??? yes i have never barely left the house i dont go out only for groceries i dont have 'me' time but thats part of being a parent & i accept that. Just need someone who is on my side & sick of people judging me.but maybe everyone is right?
