For the past two days my 14 month old daughter cries her head off when I put her down even to do the smallest task. I dont know if I should walk away like its a temper tantrum or if I should comfort her. Is she trying to have control or is she too young for this? What is the best way to handle this?Answer Question

I had this problem with my LO, too. I'd leave the room and if she fussed I'd come back after 30 sec to reassure her that I was still around. Then I went up to 1 min and so on until she stopped. Now she plays by herself when I have things to do. I also found that if I gave her a sippy before I walked out then she wouldn't know I was gone. at least until the sippy was empty. just don't give too much juice or you'll be running back to diarrhea!
