Q:

hi all,
i love my baby so much and i always keep him on my lap or shoulder whenever I'm free for few minutes also. my in-laws says that if i carry him on my lap he will become weak and thin. is it true please advice.

in laws play with my 3month old baby after my feeding say for 1-2 hrs.. they don't let him sleep and if he cries after 2 hrs, i ask them he is hungry and needs feed. they say let him cry for sometime you should not feed immediately if he is crying. are these true .. I'm going into depression listening to all these..

Not at all Kamalini Rao, its a pure myth. Infact he will be feeling safe when you hold him close to you. In a day, try putting him in the floor by giving lot of protection. When you do this, he can learn motor skills.

absolutely not!! babies cry when they want something..thts the only form of communication fr them. pls don't listen to ur inlaws abt this. ur baby needs ur care n love. hes only 2 months. pls dont do this to him. pickup immediately. hes either hungry sleepy or wet.

crying is good but not much.. everyone tell if baby cries then he digest food.. if u r feeling baby is crying more feed him immediately.. don't worry kamalini rao

Kamalini Rao, oh even that is a myth dear. I heard people telling me that if baby cries, her blood flow will increase. Please do not go to depression. You need to enjoy this phase. Happy motherhood 👍☺️

I'm really feeling very depressed,to feed my baby i need to ask them several times and wait for their permission to take my baby for feed. why don't they understand the pain. milk will be flowing from breast, if i don't feed in 2hrs. i want to be a good daughter in law that's y i dont argue but inside my motherly love is supressed. sometimes I feel like to scratch my baby from them and go away from here but it's not possible and being a house wife i need to depend  on my husband and his family.

when he cries it means he is hungry...u should feed him...n its true that if u will always keep him in ur lap he will not get his proper growth bcoz...when he plays as his own the movement of his legs n hands will be a perfect exercise....n will make his digestion strong...

Hey Kamalini please don't get depressed at all..whatever they said regarding g crying n weakness of baby is all myth..nothing is like...this is a precious time to build a strong bonding with baby. don't let ur baby cry dear feed her at her time. Spend quality time as much as possible...play with ur baby giggling her talk to her laugh with her....baby needs mother the most. Enjoy ur golden motherhood dear don't let it go just like that...talk to your hubby try to make him understand your situation. Never be upset dear you are a very good daughter inlaw but now you need to be a good mother as well so follow your heart firmly...All the best..loads of love to u n ur baby😘
