  • It is a stage. My son and all my friends' kids are doing the same thing. We all have kids close to the same age. Some of us are SAHMs and others are working moms and ALL of the kids are behaving the same way. They will grow past it. It's driving me nuts too...especially now that he can follow me

  • my son is 8 mths old doing the same thing lol it is just a phase. My son follows me around crying. I guess I have just gotten used to it. Dont baby him because it will not get better. let the phase run its course LOL
