    I think there's plenty of evidence to suggest that leaving a baby that young to cry can do harm. Here are a few links

    Did you know that a person's lifelong response to stress is largely set by the time they are 6 months old. If they are consistently soothed when stressed as an infant they have a greater capacity to deal well with stress for life. The books "The Science of Parenting" and "Why Love Matters: How affection shapes a child's brain" have a good overview of what is known about the science of brain development and uncomforted crying. I know it can be tough but they're only little for such a short time. Enjoy those snuggles and definitely invest in a sling or carrier
