I picked mine up EVERYTIME. they cried. They need you when they cry. Humans need touch and closness. My kids didnt need to learn to stooth themselves becasue I would always be there. And they have grown up nicly even if I do say so myself.

Yes, of course you should pick him up! He's not spoiled, he's human. Babies are meant to be held and cuddled a lot -- that's how they learn to trust the people around them.

If you pick him up at every cry he will not learn to soothe himself. Babies who learn to soothe themselves are much easier to put to sleep at night and if they wake up they will put themselves back to sleep. I learned this the hard way unfortunately :(

Sometimes they just need a cuddle. Don't pick him up straight away though. Sometimes, they just need to settle. If you pick them up as soon as they make a noise, they will know that that is the way you will do it all the time. Unless they start to get distressed.. then you should pick him up. Otherwise I let my children try to settle themselves.
