Son cries when anyone leaves

My son is almost 10 months old and he's been doing this thing where he cries whenever ANYONE leaves. I mean, its not just his father and I, its any person that is in the room. He's not neglected or anything like and theres always someone else in the room with him. Anyone else have a kid that does this?

  • i think its a stage, my 8 1/2 month old son is in too. He cries even when he cant see me, like when i go to the kitchen to make a bottle or make his cereal. he doesn't like me to leave him...

  • Maybe when he hears the door open and close he thinks mommy is leaving? because he knows the sounds and what goes along with it? Mines only 3 months so i'm not quite there yet.
