Separation Anxiety

My poor sweet boy has it...BAD. He's right at the age where it would be most likely for him to start, and I was hoping it wouldn't effect him, but I don't think that's going to happen. He doesn't want me out of his sight. And when Jared is home, he doesn't want either of us out of his sight.

I thought it was just going to be during the daytime. He normally freaks out the second I leave his sight, & putting him down for naps is getting more difficult. He crawls toward me in his crib and reaches out for me. And really, how can you deny this face...
Last night was a whole other story though. Lincoln didn't get to bed until midnight. Every time I attempted to leave the room, his head would shoot up and he'd start to cry, reaching for me. He must have his Daddy's super sonic ears, because I was SO quiet! I hate to see him so sad :(
On a fun note, we tried out his new horse that my cousins gave to us from their children. Looks like my little comedian enjoyed it :)

And, here he is again, happy as can be :)
I hope he gets over the separation anxiety soon, but I'm not sure how quickly these phases last. If anyone has any advice on how to help my poor sweet boy out, please please do share!

  1. Hi there! I'm a new reader/follower, my son is also going through this. I'm not sure if this will help because obviously every baby is different but you could try putting one of your t-shirts on a bear or stuffed animal and putting it in his crib. Parker isn't too bad right now and it is mostly me he is anxious about not seeing so I have my husband put him down after he falls asleep (in my arms) and it seems to work for us.

    Hope I helped!



Comments make me happy! I love to hear from my readers :)
