I think I'm just looking for reassurance my 16m son likes me! He's become really hard work when it's just us he wants to be picked up / carried all the time, he cries because he wants something and then chucks himself about when you give it him, I'm starting to dread taking him out because it looks like he's a handful and I'm not managing. he also wants boob all the time and I'd pretty much weaned him apart from before bed and first thing. He'll be crying because your trying to put his coat on and wrestle him in the car and then the moment the nursery open the door he's smiling and running off to play with the staff there and they say ' ooh he's so good' I asked if he's close clingy at all there and they said he's really happy all the time. It makes me feel a bit deflated. Is this just a phase?
