    Default Baby hold struggling

    I have severe OCD and hate the idea of causing harm for others I worry I hurt baby by doing the football or crotch hold wherein you hold the baby by the crotch facing out. I see people hold babies like that all the time and my mum friends assure me they do it. am I crazy. Do U guys hold babies like that? Is it ok? Is it safe? Does it harm the baby? Am I evil? Is it intrusive. How could it be bad if everyone does it?

    Hi.

    You have asked this question before in 2017 and 2016. Do you have a new baby and are now struggling with it again?

    If this is continuing to cause you great concern after 4 years, I would urge you to seek some counselling specific to this being an issue for you.
