My 9 1/2 month old hates when I leave the room even if she can see me still she screams and crawls after me as quick as she can. Usually I talk to her and give her some things to play with, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes she is so clingy I can't even set her down, but I still pull out a bunch of toys set her down for awhile, she plays then fusses after awhile, I hold her and then try again. Its like that most of the day, but she does need to learn to play by herself some of the time. She is good about playing with other people, but also fusses when they leave even if there is someone still with her. She doesn't like anyone leaving the room. I just try to get her to play by herself some of the time, other times I play with her for awhile then she's ok by herself for awhile, I know eventually she won't be so clingy and it is kinda sweet even if a little bit difficult to do housework.
