My 18 month old son is very clingy. When other people are there he just wants me and won't play by himself. He justs wants to be attached to me all the time. Is this normal or should I be doing something about it? confused

Strangely my very independent DD (18 months next week) has suddenly become like that. Even getting jealous if one of the dogs wants a cuddle! hmm

DD has been going to a CM since she was 4 months old but has now starting whimpering when I drop her off, but I know she's fine once I've gone. It does seem to be worse when she's not well though.

I think it will just be a phase and so when she wants a cuddle, I give her one so that she knows that I'm there for her. But if I'm in the middle of something, I don't stop to cuddle her. But I do it as soon as I can.

No advice though really - sorry!

Sounds like a phase then if your DD is doing it too. smile
