I made an off hand statement I have always been taught was true: you can't spoil a baby. I mean infant -- new born. What I took the statement to mean is once a kid gets about 18 month and their will goes toe to toe with your, you can spoil that child. but, before that, give them all the love and attention you have. Someone disagreed with me when I said this. What do you think? Can you spoil a baby?
