  • Remember that silly game peek a boo? That is the answer believe it or not. Start by playing it with a blanket. When sweet daughter finds this amusing, move behind a door or something that seems you are leaving and coming. As she finds this amusing, make the timing a bit longer. Play this game each day for about a 1/2 hour until she learns that you "come back". Silly little game worked wonders for my first two who are very well adjusted 11 and 15 year olds now. Blessings to you and you baby!

  • im gonna agree with first answer, we did the peek a boo thing to and i would say it worked 75% of the is astage they go through and sometimes they outgrow it super fast and sometimes it even comes back. my dd is 15 months and she went through it 8-11 months, and now is slightly back in it....but i think it gets worse when they dont feel good, teething, tired!
