Tell me ya'll are going through this too? If I so much as turn away from LO she can start her whiny cry just anticipating I'm going to walk away from her. Her dad and grandma, both whom she ADORES, don't even hold a candle to me anymore - she only wants me. If they try to grab her from me she has a complete meltdown. She's been walking for months now but all of a sudden acts like her legs are broken the minute I put her down and starts to freak. This is normal right? Just a developmental thing? How long does this typically last for? It's wearing on us. What is the best response? I immediately go to her to comfort her, I figure she will outgrow this phase at some point and I want her to feel safe. My DH thinks we should just let her cry and "get used" to it - but that clearly doesn't work. What are others doing??
