  • OH for petes sake. He is still a baby. Let him be one.

  • My son did that. I just put up with it. He quit being so protective after a month. Its just a phase.

  • Stay home and let him feel more secure. Yeah.. If only it were that simple. Beats me though, he's one. He needs to be a momma's boy!

  • yea. i don't think there is much you can do about it. He's still a baby and he loves you.

    However, there are ways that you can prevent any prolonging of this behavior. When it is time for you to go. Tell him that you have to leave, and that you will be back later. That you love him and you think of him even while you are away. Then kiss and hug him. And then leave. Don't look back. don't doddle. once you say goodbye get out!
    Whatever you do, don't try to sneak out. This will only increase his fear of you leaving.

    As far as sleeping in his own bed. Just be consistent. Keep putting him back. over ...and over ...and over again. Do not talk to him (unless it's clear he had a nightmare or something). Just keep putting him back.

  • that sounds like a 2 yr old, not a problem. Yeah, your daughter didn't do that... but your daughter is a compleatly different child. My two year old daughter will sit at the bathroom door and cry if I don't invite her in, she cries when I walk out the door... she is a normal 2 yr old. Don't worry, he will grow out of this clingy faze... before you know it, he won't want anythign to do with you!!! Just wait till he is five going on 15!!! enjoy that he wants you now...

  • Wait. He'll grow out of it on his own.
