My baby is 9 months old and we're extremely close. She's also going thru separation anxiety and stranger anxiety, and the only person she wants when there are strangers is me. My in-laws and husband take this as I have spoiled her too much, they think I should just let her cry but she'll follow me around the room and sit at my feet and scream til I pick her up if there are "strangers" around. She suffered a brain injury at 4 months old so I just cannot let her cry especially when all she needs for comfort is me. I don't see why they can't just be thankful that she's a happy and healthy baby instead of trying to "break her" of her habit of constantly clinging to me. Am I being stubborn about this or are they right in your opinion?
