I don't really know which advise to take on this. I personally don't like leaving Sophie to cry for too long, especially as she is so young still. If I'm busy at the time she starts crying I'll quickly finish what I was doing if it's only a small job and I will generally then pick her up and soothe her of see what's wrong and will keep hold of her till she settles again and then put her back down. At night if she starts crying I'll pick her up and just hold her till she settles again and then put her back in her crib and she generally settles quite well. However quite a few people have said that me doing this will only make her clingy and cause problems to start later on and if I don't watch it now then it will be hard to break the habit she gets into. I don't want her to be clingy when she's older but at the minute I just feel shes far too young to let her get worked up crying. Not quite sure what I should do :/, carry on as I'm doing and let her grow out of wanting to be so close or leave her to cry when she's just wanting to be comforted?
