My first child was very colicky (sp?) and cried all the time, if you held him all the time or not, until he learned how to crawl at about 5 mos. My second was very independent and easy going.
Caden is not colicky, he's very happy as long as you hold him. He is just VERY clingy. He wants to be held ever single second. He barely rolls over and doesn't sit well on his own and I think it's because he doesn't get any practice! I had to change into my bathing suit/put sunscreen on to take the kids to the pool today and had to put him down for 5 min. in plain site of me to do this. He got so worked up that when I picked him up, he threw up all over me. I rarely let him get worked up, but there are times I've had to and he throws up every time.
I've bought an Ergo so that I can get more done and it's wonderful, but I just am a little concerned about this not being able to be put down for one second stuff. I guess I should add that we did just get home from vacation, so it's probably worse, but this was going on before vacation.
Is there any insight anyone can give me? Am I making this worse by holding him all the time? Do I need to let him cry *JUST a little* a little more often? Or is this just a phase I need to get through?
