My Baby Wants to Constantly Be Held

My baby is 5 wks old and wants to be constantly held. I understand he hasn't learned to self soothe and maybe a little young for self-soothing.

Eating Out at Restaurants

My husband and I really enjoy eating out at a restaurant once a week. My daughter always comes with us and has been very well behaved except for the last couple of times.

We bring a few toys, snacks so she has something to munch on before her dinner arrives and she always had crayons and papers. I feel we should maybe stop going for a while until she...
