Can I spoil my newborn?

Na uh, no way, no how – just NO.

You may have received that unsolicited advice that tells you if you hold your baby you’re “spoiling them” which will lead to “bad habits” later on.

The fact is your baby can’t consciously connect cause and effect. They don’t think to themselves, ‘I’m going to cry until I get what I want!’

Your baby is dependent on you, they can’t fix what’s bothering them on their own – whether it be a hungry tummy or needing a nappy change.

You are your baby’s safe place and provide the loving and nurturing environment they need to develop.
