I know a lot of you girls have heard this before but it's just happening to me and we've been fighting about it all day and need advice to show him. DH thinks that DD (who is 8.5 months) is super attached to me because every time I leave the room she cries. And every time we are out now and someone else tries to hold her she cries. I tried telling him that it is her age and that all babies go through separation anxiety and usually prefer their mothers over strangers. He thinks it is because I am at home with her that it's making her this way. But I take her out to all types of social situations and let her be around different people and children. Granted, I don't drop her off for long periods of time with anyone but I like it that way and so does she. And she's only developed this lately, which I think is totally normal for her age and development. My theory is that they will become attached to whoever cares for them most, and in my situation I'm glad it's ME she has separation anxiety with and not someone else because it's inevitable, all kids get it, right? Do you think SAHMs have more issues with thier children regarding separation anxiety because they are with thier children all day?
