  • It's a normal phase. It's separation anxiety. Try They have a lot of ideas for this. Good luck!

  • My son is 8 months and sometimes does this, not all the time. He goes to day care two days a week, plus my mom watches him the other week days if I need to work, so he is used to being without us.

  • of course.. they all do it.. its seperation anxiety.. babies dont know the difference between i'll be right back, or im going to the store be back later.. all they know is mommy is out of sight and they are bothered... sorry, but this will last for a month or more.. my son is in the worst part of it, but now that he's crawling/scooting, he follows me and knows exactly where im going..
