  • You need to get her used to other people a little at a time. Have a grandparent or friend come over, play with your dd together, then say you need to go to the kitchen for something, leave your dd with this person, then say you need to run out to your may take a few days or a week, but do this at least every other day. Making your absences alittle longer each time. Always tell your dd that your leaving and that you'll be right back. Then when you come back tell her your back and give her hugs and kisses. She just needs to get used to being away from you, and to learn to trust that your coming back. GL
