Ok people, I have a situation here. My precious little boy has turned into a stage five clinger. The picture above depicts what I see ALL DAY LONG!!! If I leave his sight for one second my usually happy happy boy turns into a whiny screaming clinger. What the heck happened? Seriously, all the sudden he completely changed! I guess they call this the separation anxiety stage. How long will it last? Don't get me wrong...I actually have a love-hate relationship with his clinginess. I love that he wants me and wants me to hold him or cuddle with him. But how do you get anything done all day carrying a 28 pound baby boy everywhere? And poor poor Jeff, he is no substitute for mommy. So experienced moms out there, anyone else have an all-the-sudden-stage-five-clinger? How did you respond to his clinginess? How long did it last? Any tips?
