Change in ds behaviour.

(3 Posts)

Recently ds 3 has started becoming a bit more clingy and needy - he is normally the most independent, bouncy child and is very affectionate. He is a very generous child and when he has friends over he gives them his favourite toys to play with and if he has a treat he shares bits with me and his dad. I love giving him all the affection he needs but I am worried the recent change in behaviour is because I am pregnant - I am still in the first trimester and have told him about it in very simple terms - is it likely to be causing his behaviour - and what do I do to reassure him without encouraging his behaviour? Any more experienced mums or dads around with advice.

My DS has been clingier since I have been pregnant definately. He is 3 in August. I think that they don't really understand what is happening but know something is so are a bit unsettled IYSWIM. My ds wants to be carried all the time and has become very reliant on his dummy which he never was before. I seem to remember DD doing this too before DS was born but she would have been younger. She just grew out of it once DS was born. Hence why I am not too worried this time around.

Thanks for that QueenFee - he is wanting to be carried more and babied more. It's nice to know it's normal.
