    It's totally normal hun. I don't think I managed to start and finish a single chore in one sitting until James was 6 weeks?

    Also he could be having his first leap (check out "The Wonder Weeks" it will explain everything but babies have developmental leaps at certain ages and it makes them super clingy)

    I dunno if 4 weeks is maybe a little young. They don't have a long attention span at that age. My son is 12 weeks and will sit in his bouncer and play with things or watch me while I do bits and bobs, but he's only really happy for half an hour tops.

    You wont spoil your baby, he is sooo young. Trust me, you wont regret holding your baby but you might regret not giving him cuddles. They grow up so quickly.
    My advice is get a sling

    Tapatalking so cant see signatures

    Forget about chores for the first 3 m. I always picked Amelie when she cried and she is not spoiled at all. She sleeps through the night from 4 m old and she self settles just fine.
    Pick your baby and enjoy it. Get a sling or a carrier and you can move around and do things while holding your baby.
