Is it ok to hold a newborn (4 weeks old) in an upright position? I only do it when trying to burp her, and sometimes she would fall asleep on my shoulder and I would just let her.
I went out shopping today with my newborn and after a feed I begain to burp her on my shoulder. Then this old man kept on starring a me. At first I thought maybe hes just looking at the view or someone else and ignored him, but then he started talking to this girl next to him in extremely loud voice, saying that its so wrong to hold a baby upright when they are so young and how we not suppose to do it before the baby turns 6 months or at least 2 months old and he just went on and on about what sort of damage this could do to the baby and etc. I felt horrible! And now I am paranoid!
