DD is 8mths. Usually pretty happy:) But lately when I leave the room for a second she starts to cry. She's been a little extra clingy too, which I dont mind. Didnt know if this was a phase? And how long does it last, the crying when I leave the room?

My LO did the same thing around that age. He had a few weeks of separation anxiety then it passed.

At that age, separation anxiety is at it's highest. Be patient, it's just a phase :)

Mine just started doing this like 2 weeks ago. She is 8 months As well. She's usually very independent but lately she has been super clingy all the time. I'm enjoying it bc usually she won't cuddle with me unless I make her

Thanks girls! I don't mind, just hard to take shower now lol she was always a mamas girl, never wanted anyone to hold her, I worry when I leave for work tomorrow. My neighbor is watching her and I tried 3 days for her to warm ip to her but dd wasn't having it. Hope it goes ok

She'll adapt, but a week is a long time!
