How do you say, "My grandfather and grandmother often held me when I was a baby"?
Is this correct for "My grandfather and grandmother often held me when I was a baby"?
Mi abuelo y abuela a menudo me sostenían cuando era un bebé.
My main problem is finding the right verb to use. Well, at least I think that's my main problem so far.
Thanks for your help!
Muchas veces mi abuelo y abuela me abrazaban cuando era un bebé.
I think the correct word is "cargaban". That is what you do "cargar un bebé" when you are holding a baby.
I think if you didn't want to say or write "abuelo y abuela", you could write "abuelos" which stands for grandparents.
I think Spanish uses several different verbs according to context: sostener, tener, abrazar, etc.
Every heard how the Beatles song "I want to hold your hand" is translated?
Quiero tomar tu mano or quiero sostener tu mano
Would the verb "sujetar" work here? "A menudo, mis abuelos me sujetaron cuando era un bebé."
