Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Is it possible to spoil a newborn?

Nope. At this age babies need to have their needs met quickly. They shouldn't be left alone and they shouldn't have to cry in order to get what they need. Pick up your baby, hold your baby, love your baby.
Agreed, they need to know that they can depend on you for everything, food, keeping them clean, attention. Even newborns can sense when they arent getting the attention they need and the only way they know to communicate that is to cry because it gets your attention.
So true. You can't spoil a baby. They need the attention and closeness that you provide.
