The past few days Maya has been atrocious. She has never been bad (well overly cranky, I don't really think a baby can really be "bad"), she screams and cries until I pick her up... and that's all she wants is to be picked up. But once I do she's reaching and stretching for the ground... then when I set her down she loses it again. I don't know what to do, it's been a constant occurrence for the past 3 days. I feel like I need to be firm and not pick her up, because it will just teach her what she's doing is okay and that's how she gets what she wants yadda yadda. But she cries so hard, and gets herself so worked up.. and they say you can't spoil a baby right? And then she starts saying mama and really trying to get at me, and that breaks my heart to ignore her then.
God help me, I'm going to be the pushover parent.
