I don't think it's bad. My DR said that they go from being held 24/7 inside you and then to only like 12 hours and that's a huge drop for them. E loves being held to sleep, but he can also sleep on his own. When he is really tired and falls asleep when I am holding him, I leave him. I love the extra cuddles too. I'll be really sad when he doesn't want to be held.
