DS has always been quite an independent little man, happy to play on his own if I was busy and very active and keen to crawl around and explore without me. But suddenly in the last 2 weeks he's become extremely clingy. Some days I literally can't put him down all afternoon or he screams and cries like he's really distressed. It's such a contrat from his normally behaviour. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing it? Or any ideas on the best way to respond?

Separation anxiety. It kicks in at 9 months. Just keep cuddling and responding to him and he'll get through it smile

9 months is typically when separation anxiety kicks in! So it will pass. Talk to him and tell him what you're doing/where you're going etc, I know he seems too young to understand but I felt like it helped.
