We have had a lot of visitors since coming home from the hospital. We love that everyone is so excited to meet and hold the boys. I love showing them off because they are absolutely the most precious babies I've ever seen :) When friends and family come over to visit of course they want to hold the babies. Who wouldn't?!? However, since people are holding them between feedings, the boys are getting used to being held while they sleep. Now we're finding that after feeding when it's time to put them down for sleepy time they seem to wake up and cry cry cry until we pick them up. Once we pick them up they seem content and stop crying. Is it too early for them to learn such a bad habit? Well, when they're being held by visitors it's usually not just a short amount of time. We're talking about being held for a good 2 hours. Maybe it's my fault because I didn't expect or anticipate this happening. Maybe it's totally unrelated, but when they get like that we're not sure what to do. We talked to the pediatrician and she said they are too young to let them just cry it out-to pick them up for now. So where does that leave us? Will they out grow this? Do you have any suggestions?
Tomorrow we're having a cookout for the 4th/my birthday. There will be my family and his family here. That's a lot of people wanting to hold the babies. For some reason, that makes me nervous. Sigh!
