My 4 month old is very particular. He is a high-needs baby and likes everything just so. Well in the morning, my husband will take the baby and play with him, allowing me to get extra sleep, clean or exercise. He brings the baby back to me every 2 hours for a feeding, then he will take the baby away again, for a total of around 4 hours. The thing is, after the baby gets played with for a little while by my husband, he starts to get very fussy and almost like he is just not happy with anything my husband does. So my husband resorts to sitting on an exercise ball while holding the baby in his arms, and bounces him. My son seems to love this...seems to really calm him. The thing is that my husband will do this for 1-2 hours at a time, sometimes.
I want to know if this is ok. My son is meeting his developmental milestones...but for some reason I feel guilty when I see my husband bouncing the baby for so long so often...even if my son seems to like it.
Am I just worrying about nothing?
For the record, I hardly ever bounce on the ball with him, I do other things to entertain the baby.
