16. A baby, that loves to be in your arms
He really needs it. "Still in your arms, you're going to make a capricious one!" This reflection annoys you? Say it! Because, before 6 months, if you run to take your baby in his arms as soon as he cries and if he spends a lot of time against you, you do not risk to make a tyrant! On the contrary, you help him lay the foundations of his inner security. Your toddler needs to be "content". To comfort and reassure, the most effective solution is your arms. And this close combat with you during his first few months will help him get away from you later. But not too much is needed. Cuddling, all right, but your baby must learn to fall asleep without you.
