Ok.. Ds # 4 is now 8 weeks. It has been a rocky road with a couple of hospital admissions . Dd# 3 has always been a strong outgoing very secure little girl. ( 2 yrs 3 months) in the past 3 weeks she has had a cold. And now seems super clingy and insecure. Hanging onto my hand when out.. Lots of I want mummy demands.. Hanging onto stroller... I am doing lots of stuff with her, kindy gym, play group, playing at home, started swimming lessons but have had to step back to me going in the pool with her as she is having bad separation anxiety about me but bring in the pool. How do I help her get through this. #4 is a great baby. Feeds, sleeps.contrnt. Also dd was in her own room now back in our room as she won't settle in her room.

Honestly, just give her time. It's a phase. Gently encourage her to be a bit more confident and remind her how special she is, but don't push her. Try and have a bit of alone time with her every day.
