  • My 17-mo-old does this to an extent, too. We try to talk to her and explain sometimes she just has to wait b/c mummy and daddy are busy. (Tough to pick her up while trying to cook dinner.) We also try to distract her with something that will keep her interested long enough to lose a few minutes interest in us. It's tough b/c she is so incredibly affectionate!

  • My son is the same way but he clings to me and my DH. The best thing I have found to work is if you are going to leave him with someone is to drop him off and leave, even if he starts to cry, (mine only cries for about 5 minutes). and if your going to stay don't ignore him but dont pick him up and cuddle him to you!!
