Lately my 21 month old has been whining- not cuz hes hungry, soiled, sick/hurt, bored, tired or ignored- but just whining ddaaaaa daaaaa, or every now and then mamaaaaaa. Its been getting worse over the last month or so, when I sneak out of the room, and he's out with some other family or whatever, he is just fine, but if/when he sees me/daddy it starts. We give him plenty of love and attention, but he'll just WHINE. My mom even asked why does he do that after you get home from work?
It drives me absolutely insane- it drains me to hear ddaaaaaa ddaaaaa or ammaaaaaa all day long. He never used to be this bad, he had seperation anxiety for a lil bit, not this bad, and he got over it (i thought-maybe not) but its too much now
Any ideas on why he's doing this, what we can do to stop/minimize it?
I even tell him striaght out "Hey! You do not have to whine like that-talk nice, dont scream" Tried to ignore it - no help
