My ds2 has been my shadow lately, he cries if I try to leave the room, tries to get in my clothes with me, says the M word 7 million times a day and is generally clamped to me at all times. I can't even put him to bed because he weeps when I leave the room, but goes down ok for Dp.
Will it pass, I can't remember from my other 2 , or is he just a generally more clingy child?
Yes, separation anxiety peaks at this age, it does pass. DD1 did this mostly at night, would wake up and not go back down, I was very PG at the time and ended up sleeping on a mattress in her room and all I had to do was say that I was there. It took about 6 weeks and then it passed. The best thing to do is definitely cuddles and reassurance, no matter how frustrating it can get!
