Are you spoiling your baby?

Parenting a new baby is exciting but often confusing. How do you know if you're behavior is spoiling the baby or helping him thrive?

New parents are often concerned that they may spoil their newborn, but there is no need to worry. At about six months of age, babies can learn to start to manipulate their parents.

Babies have different cries depending on their needs, but no two babies are alike and sometimes letting them cry it out is not the answer. Babies can be hard to read, so if you're struggling, ask your pediatrician for help.
