Hi everyone.. I have girl boy twins who are now 9months but help is needed, the little boy is amazing happily plays on his own but my little girl is the most clingy baby I've ever come across.. To the point where she won't let me hold my little boy..
So if anyone has any advice on how to reassure her, and balance out this anxiety it would be very helpful
Thanks xz

Personally I would ignore pause4thought's post.
Not sure how to balance out anxiety. some children are just naturally more clingy/need more reassurance as babies. ds was dreadfully clingy as a baby but by the time he was moving and into everything i was basically ignored. Quite a culture shock to go from not being able to put down, to not being allowed a hug.

My boy is nearly 2 and still clingy but he is getting alot better now. He was really bad when he was younger no one elae cpuld hold him even his dad if I left the room he would cry, if I cuddled my daughter he would cry. I think you just have to ride it out, thats all I do he seems to want to play more now and I can leave the room without him having a breakdown

I give mine jobs to do once he has put something in the laundry basket, tidied his shoes, found a book etc he eventually forgets he wanted a cuddle and starts pottering around with his own things.

Sorry just re read she is only 9 months at that age I would start a game or job with him esp things where my hands were busy like baking.
