  • You need to leave him more often, and leave for brief times and come back and be thrilled to see him. That way he will learn that just because you left doesn't mean you won't come back. Once he knows you'll be back he will calm down. Good luck.

  • It sounds like separation anxiety. Make him feel comfortable with the sitters before you leave him with them. Visit and don't leave so he feels safe there. Then the next time take him and stay a few minutes before you go. He'll adapt.
