: Hi everyone.I am new here but have so many questions being a first time mum! I have an 11 1/2 week old daughter. Just the past week or so, she is starting to become really unsettled, all day - she just seems to want to be held all the time. Is this bad? My husband tells me not to pick her up, but i cant handle her crying all the time. There doesnt seem to be anything wrong, she just likes to be cuddled. Any ideas??
Find something she enjoys that soothes her. Try music, bouncey seat, swing. Soft, constant noises often help as well. We spent many days running the vacuum cleaner and not vacuuming... hehe. It is very difficult for a baby to want to be held constantly. My son was this way. I tried everything and at times they worked. He would quickly move on though, so stay on your toes and get creative! Good luck!
