My daughter wants me to hold her all the time. just cleaning the house today took all day long because i had to keep taking breaks to pick her up. I let her cry but after 30 minutes i felt it was too much. we did this all day long and now my poor baby is exhausted.

Picking up the baby when they cry like that is rewarding negative behavior, as hard as it is stand firm. If you feel overwhelmed put her in her crib and close the bedroom door, it won't hurt her to cry it out. I had a similer problem with my first, she cried for an hr the first time and it realy sucked but gradually she got the idea. Hope this was helpful. Good luck
