Our newborn (11 days) daughter sometimes - about once every three times - has trouble sleeping unless she is being hugged, cuddled or carried by me or my wife.
We have tried leaving her crying for 10 minutes, but after that time there was no sign of calming, so we took her to cuddle her to sleep eventually. She slept peacefully from then on for a few hours.
The question is: is such behavior of ours going to introduce bad habits later on, or are we allowed to do it for now, at least sometimes?
What are the signs to watch for to avoid bad sleeping habits in the future?
