Sep 25, 2011 To Carry or Not to Carry Whenever there is a family gathering, everyone wants to hold the cute new baby. But what happens when the family disperses and the kid has gotten used to being picked up and carried all the time? The kid may expect to be carried all the time once the army of family has gone away and this is simply not possible. Should you restrict family from carrying your kid all the time? I mean should you encourage family to interact with him while he sits independently on the floor or in his playpen? It will be interesting to face this challenge?
