I have a 4 and a half month old little girl (Anna) and she is my first child.
I can't stand it when people think or say that I am "spoiling" the baby!!!
People have said that I spoil her by:
- sitting in the back seat of the car with her when my husband is driving
- feeding her on demand (when she was a newborn)
- consoling her by picking her up when she has been teething (3 and 4 months old)
- keeping her away from people who I know are sick (have a cold or flu)
I think the above examples are NOT spoiling her...I think it is common sense and good parenting. I
Are there any other moms who have experienced this? If so, how did you react to the people who said these things?
