I've never had a baby that had to be held constantly this young. My lo isn't even a week old and I swear the minute I put him down he wakes up and cries until I pick him up. Is this normal?

Yup. Some babies just liked to be held. You should invest in a wrap.

Totally normal



If he DIDN'T want to be held, I don't htink that would be normal

Yeah, they aren't used to being away from you. They have been held for 9 months.. Of course they don't want to be put down

My middle daughter was like this, once I got the swaddle thing down it helped some so I could get some chores done during the day, lol.



Luckily our newest addition (2 weeks old) does great during the day and naps in her infant carrier or bed...nighttime is a different story.

My LO is exactly the same way, but only at night.. It's scary because I'll be really tired and fall asleep while holding himand I'll wake up and we've slept together until his next feeding..
