So, let me just say that I am getting kind of tired of EVERYONE trying to tell me how to raise my baby. So many people just think it's their responsibility to give me unwanted advice. Yes, being a mom has been hard, but I LOVE cuddling with my baby and I love it when she smiles and is happy...what mom doesn't love that? What I want to know is, when did letting your baby scream their head off and try to calm themselves make you a better mom than the mom who goes in and cuddles with their baby? I was told today that I am a bad mom because I cannot stand letting my baby cry and cry. I'm sorry but when Bethanie is screaming like she is being murdered, I am not just going to sit back and listen without wanting to comfort her. It kills me having to hear that cry. I would much rather see my baby smiling in my arms than to have her screaming, face turning red and tears streaming down her cheeks in her bed. Does this make me a bad mom???
