should we hold baby on hand at all time?

My girl (3+ years old) is very lazy to walk. She likes to be carried, especially with grandma who likes to carry her since she was a baby. I don't like to "help" her walk. Do you think keep carrying a baby on hand will become a habit when they turn to toddler? Or I should have carry her even more so the result will be different? any mum has experienced this before? and what was the result when they turn older ?

I think it depends on the personality of the child. My husband turned walking/running into little games and challenges for my daughter to encourage her to do them, and it worked like a charm. Heh. Now my daughter can walk really long distances.

thanks thanks! this is a good idea too. i always stress her in good and bad way. lucky she is 3+yo can understand me now. haha. I used to tell my MIL, but she cannot do it. She treats her grandchildren like always the little one never grow up. i was so stressful last time when my LO had started to learn crawling and so on. End up I rather brought LO out don't stay at home. Now my 2nd child is 3 months old. I think stressful is around the corner again. 🤔
