Baby wear if you can. She's normal.... and yes, you absolutely SHOULD 'give in'... you can't spoil a baby by giving them what they need... and she needs you.

If you can't baby wear and can't hold her all the time. Set her down (in the same room as you) and talk to her the entire time and take frequent breaks to get down and interact w/ her... or hold her... or whatever she needs to not lose her mind.

But really... hold her whenever you can. Most other things can wait a little... babies don't last (trust me... my youngest is 7 now).
